The next round of grants for healthy living projects were launched at Sussex Coast College Hastings on Friday, February 26.

The Hastings and Rother Clinical Commissioning Group’s (CCG) Small Grants Fund offers up to £10,000 to schemes tackling health inequality in the area.

CCG chief officer Amanda Philpott said the scheme supports ‘vital’ work by the community.

“It was inspiring to hear from the beneficiaries about how they are using our investment to support local people’s health and wellbeing and we are looking forward to receiving applications for round two,” she said.

Overall, 26 organisations received a total of £200,000 in grants in round one of the scheme.

Hastings and Rye MP Amber Rudd thanked the CCG for giving her the opportunity to hear from the previous recipients.

“It is fantastic to hear about the wonderful work that local organisations such as the Sara Lee Trust and Little Gate Farm are doing in order to improve the lives of local residents.”

Grants are now available from £1,000 to £10,000 and applications must be received by May 20. More information can be found at: www.hastingsandrotherccg.nhs.uk.
