Community groups across Norwich are being encouraged to bid for £5,000 grants from the city’s health chiefs.

Norwich Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is welcoming applications to its Healthy Norwich scheme, which aims to improve lifestyles and promote good health.

Examples of the sort of idea that could be successful in its bid would be a scheme that helps prevent people smoke, support people’s mental wellbeing, or help people maintain a healthy weight.

A total of £40,000 is being offered in grants by the CCG, in association with Norfolk Community Foundation.

Each grant will be for a maximum of £5,000 though chiefs will consider giving more money to any outstanding ideas.

Applications must be made by April 13 and can be submitted by clicking here.
