What are Keighley Community Health Grants?
GiveBradford and Power to Change have come together with the aim of creating a community led health offer in Keighley.  We aim to improve health outcomes for people in Keighley by supporting community groups and community businesses to engage with social prescribing.

We want to provide funding and support to community organisations and community businesses, so that they can meet the health and wellbeing needs of people in Keighley, and to strengthen their capacity to engage with local GPs and health service commissioners.

Is it open for applications?
Keighley Community Health Grants opens for applications on 19 April 2021 and the deadline to apply is 19 May 2021 at 12 noon.

  • Have a constitution or other relevant governance document.
  • Have a management committee/board of directors/trustees of at least three unrelated people.

What can you apply for?
Groups will work with Airedale Community Partnership, who operate local primary care. This will allow grantees to link and connect to their local primary care providers and GP surgeries.  There are two levels of grant funding: to support pilot projects and start-up costs, or contribute to expanding or developing your current trading or enterprising activity. These grants are between £500 – £15,000 per year (up to £30,000 over 2 years).
