Hull: Connect Well Social Prescribing Grant Round 4 – Healthy Diet and Active Lives

Round 4 of the Connect Well social prescribing grants seeks to fund projects that support people in eating healthily and in raising their activity levels. Projects will be funded that reach those who face the greatest barriers to making healthy choices, and that adopt where appropriate, tiered approaches to suit the capacity of those with mobility and other restrictions.

The panel does not wish to support projects that focus wholly on weight loss or weight management, but rather wants to support projects that focus on healthy diet and increasing physical activity.

Eligible projects must work to achieve any or all of the following outcomes:

  • Promote a healthy diet and increased physical activity to those at risk of the impact of poor diet and inactivity, e.g. through education; information; access to healthy foods and activities, to enable them make manageable and sustainable changes.
  • Tackles the barriers to a healthy diet and increased physical activity faced by those most at risk of the impact of poor diet and inactivity, e.g. environmental and social pressures leading to poor diet choices and inactivity; lack of social or peer support for positive change; physical and emotional restrictions to increasing activity; cultural and language barriers to understanding; lack of access to healthy choices.
  • Motivates and engages those who are least active in achieving the PHE recommendation of 3 times 10 minutes of continuous brisk walking a day.
