Funding for grants of up to £5,000 or up to £10,000is now available for not-for-profit organisations all over the UK for projects that promote heart health in their communities, thanks to national charity, Heart Research UK.


Funding is available through Heart Research UK’s Healthy Heart Grant scheme and community groups have until the 31 August to apply for a grant.  The charity is looking to fund new, original and innovative projects that actively promote heart health and help to reduce the risks of heart disease in specific groups or communities.  Projects can address a variety of issues including healthy eating, physical activity and smoking cessation – with the key focus of improving heart health.

Heart Research UK is now accepting applications for their autumn grant round, which closes on 31 August 2015.

Community and voluntary organisations, registered charities, and other not-for-profit organisations based and working in the UK may apply for grants of up to £5,000 and up to £10,000.

Barbara Harpham, National Director at Heart Research UK, says:

“The aim of our Healthy Heart Grants is to encourage people to make good healthy choices and give practical help.  This funding will help even more people learn how to look after their heart health and ultimately lead healthier, happier, longer lives.  Thanks to everyone who has made these grants possible and interested groups can apply for a grant now.”
