Breckland Council Healthy Communities Fund

Breckland Council have launched a Healthy Communities fund, in partnership with Norfolk County Council Public Health, to help develop and nurture new and innovative projects to improve the health and wellbeing of residents in the district.  Three key themes have been outlined; tackling loneliness, increasing physical activity and improving the health of children and young people.  Tackling loneliness and increasing physical activity are key priorities for the UK as a whole with national reports highlighting how lonely people are more likely to suffer from dementia, heart disease and depression. Increasing levels of physical activity within our community will help to reduce obesity issues across all age groups in society, and reduce demand on NHS and local government. 

The primary aim of this Healthy Communities Fund is to uncover creative and innovative ideas from local community groups and charities that have never been tried before in Breckland.  Two funds are available; one to pilot and test ideas, the other to enable projects to become fully established.  The aspiration is that the funding support will enable the development of ground breaking projects that make a real difference to residents across Breckland.
