Brighton & Hove Community Health


This fund is now closed.

The Brighton & Hove Community Health Fund was managed in partnership with Sussex Community Foundation, Brighton & Hove Community Works and other voluntary sector infrastructure groups. It supported and funds community-led health improvement projects in Brighton & Hove. Not-for-profit community and voluntary groups in Brighton & Hove with an annual income below £35,000 could apply. The Community Health Fund offered one-to-one support and small grants of between £500 and £1,500 to groups who address any of the following areas:

  • Education and prevention of smoking and supporting people to stop
  • Helping to improve diet and nutrition and to reduce obesity
  • Improving sexual health
  • Encouraging active living and increasing exercise
  • Improving mental health and wellbeing
  • Helping to reduce social isolation
  • Supporting healthy ageing and improving health related quality of life for older people
  • Improving alcohol and drug awareness
  • Improve health-related quality of life for those with long term health conditions
  • Supporting health and well being on a reduced budget

One of the groups which has received a grant is Destressed Art, a new youth-led project for young people aged 13-18 who have experienced mental health issues. The group received £1,500 from the Brighton & Hove Community Health Fund to create a graphic novel. This resource would be used to educate other young people about their personal experiences of mental health.
