Small grants scheme launched

The Western Isles Change Team would like to invite applications to the Change Fund Small Grants Scheme, which was launched recently.

Bids for funding up to a maximum of £5,000 are invited for small projects which would assist in shifting the balance of care from a hospital to a community setting.

The Change Team, which includes representatives from health, council and the third and independent sector, is inviting bids from the third and independent sector and from statutory agencies, as part of the Reshaping Care for Older People Programme.

Funding applications would have to meet the remit of the Change Plan. Guidance and Application Forms for the Small Grant Scheme can be found at: see details.

The closing date for applications is June 8th, 2012.
