Advice for Health/ People’s Health Trust / Apply by 19 June

Advice for Health, a funding pot that aims to support people’s mental and physical health by accessing advice.

What is available?

The People’s Health Trust know that timely free and independent advice on matters such as housing and finance when it is most needed is critical, and getting support can reduce anxiety and longer-term stress and improve health.

The funding is aimed at grassroots organisations supporting local people who are experiencing financial and social disadvantage, marginalisation and discrimination. It is open in four regions of England and closes to applicants on Wednesday 19 June.

The funding can be used to provide wellbeing and emotional support to help people feel more able to access advice services. It can also be used to improve existing advice services so that they better meet the needs of people experiencing financial and social disadvantage, marginalisation and discrimination. This could mean developing more culturally appropriate services, or carrying out mapping work to understand who the service is not reaching and how best to change.

Advice for Health is open for stage one applications in the following regions of England until Wednesday 19 June.

  • East: Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk, Suffolk
