We are working in partnership with the NHS Integrated Care Board’s Health Inequalities Fund (Wiltshire) to deliver a new grants programme. Targeting Health Inequalities grants support projects which help people overcome barriers to healthier lives, improving physical and/or mental wellbeing and showing how local community projects make a difference to health outcomes.

Grants of up to £10,000 are available for registered groups to work with communities from Trowbridge, Melksham, Chippenham and Salisbury and in particular, to reach people living in the following areas:

  • John O’Gaunt - Studley Green, Trowbridge
  • Drynham - Lower Studley, Trowbridge
  • Queens – east, Chippenham
  • North – southwest, Melksham
  • North – northeast, Melksham
  • Bemerton – west, Salisbury
  • Bemerton – south, Salisbury
  • St Martin – central, Salisbury

Maps of these areas are available here.

Groups must also meet Wiltshire Community Foundation’s general eligibility criteria which you can find here.

How to find out more

If you are interested in applying please complete our brief Expression of Interest form, which you can access via the button at the bottom of the page, no later than the 19 March. The simple form asks for organisation and contact details, the location of your project and a brief description of what you are planning. One of our team will then be in touch to discuss further. 

If your organisation and project is eligible, we will invite you to find out more details about the programme so you can decide if you want to apply. Applications will close in mid-April so you need to act quickly.

Groups awarded a grant will need to engage with us to evaluate their project, working collaboratively to share learning with other funded groups. Some staff time for this can be included in your project costs.  

Decisions on successful projects should be made by mid-May 2024 and projects can run for up to one year from receipt of funds.

This programme is now closed for applications.
