A new fund for green health projects in the Highlands is now open for applications.

The Highland Green Health Small Grant Fund has been launched by the Highland Green Health Partnership (HGHP) and is aiming to contribute towards sustained green health action across Highland.

Applicable activities could be through networking, training, resource creation and other activities that help to build capacity to continue green health opportunities into the future. The fund is for projects up to £1500 that can be delivered before the end of September 2023.

Applicants must be a not-for-profit community group or organizations provide a service, or benefit with the exclusive boundary of the Highland Local Authority area and (for this round of the fund only) the wider Cairngorms National Park area.

Applications for the fund are open now, and will close on Friday March 31, 2023.

For more details on eligibility and criteria and to download an application form, please visit the HGHP website at thinkhealththinknature.scot/funding.

Kate Thomson, senior development officer for the Highland Green Health Partnership, said: “We are delighted to be offering the small grant fund for a third year! The fund has supported a fantastic range of projects and organisations in previous years and I encourage community groups working in this area to apply. Please get in touch if you’d like to chat through any project ideas.”
