Programme has re-opened for applications. Healthy Heart Grants support innovative projects designed to promote heart health and to prevent or reduce the risks of heart disease in specific groups or communities. Grants of up to £10,000 are available to community groups, voluntary organisations and researchers who are spreading the healthy heart message. Projects supported in the past have included:
- Wanderers Pulse of the Community to educate pupils in Bolton about the heart and heart disease, the importance of exercise for heart health, the dangers of smoking and heart-friendly foods.
- Empowering Families, London – ‘Babies and Toddlers’ to promote good eating habits and playing as exercise at an early age through two Parent Toddlers and Babies groups in Brent’s most deprived wards.
