Hubs capital grant scheme
Capital funding is available through an exciting new grant scheme. This scheme is looking to support new and existing hubs to develop/enhance their offer to allow them to provide an increased range of services to meet the need of the communities, enabling local residents to access services closer to their home and connect to their local communities.
Building on the successful Talk Community hubs model, the funding scheme will help provide:
- Community organisations with the funding to provide an enhanced ‘one stop shop’ wellbeing offer
- Accessible wellbeing support from a range of services under one community facility
- An offer which is tailored to local need, making a positive difference and helping communities and local people thrive.
The Expression of Interest stage is now open and the deadline has been extended until 31st July 2023
So what could the Hubs capital grant scheme funding be used for?
Capital funding could be used for adapting existing buildings, improving accessibility and enabling multi-agency working. As an example, this includes:
- Improving building space
- IT upgrades
- New equipment to support co-location, such as desks, phone systems, sinks
- Specialist flooring for clinical use by midwives or health visitors
