Reading Integration Board (RIB) – Project Fund 2024/25 – Better Care Fund – deadline 22 July 2024

Primary interest

Applications are being invited for projects and schemes at the heart of our communities which prevent the impact of physical and mental illness.

The awards from the fund can reach up to £15,000, and more in some circumstances. The applications can be from charitable or voluntary organisations, community groups, health care or council providers.

The projects and programmes should focus on health and social inequalities through one-off sessions, series of events, setting up a new project, continuous support, or expansion. This could be addressing the impact of long-term conditions, supporting people’s well-being, or tackling inequalities in the most deprived neighbourhoods and communities.

The projects will focus on vulnerable groups, ensuring older people, those with long-term health conditions, dementia, or disabilities and those most affected by health inequalities, get the help they need to live successful, independent lives in vibrant, thriving communities.

The deadline for applications is 22 July 2024. Applicants will be notified about the outcome of their application in August 2024.
