Guidance for currently funded projects can be found here

Programme_button.jpgThe Programme is supporting projects to meet the following National Health and Wellbeing Outcomes:

  • People are able to look after and improve their own health and wellbeing and live in good health for longer;  
  • People, including those with disabilities or long term conditions or who are frail, are able to live, as far as reasonably practicable, independently and at home or in a homely community setting;
  • Health and social care services are centred on helping to maintain or improve the quality of life of service users;  
  • Health and social care services contribute to reducing health inequalities;
  • People who provide unpaid care are supported to look after their own health and wellbeing, including reducing any negative impact of their caring role upon it.
