Public Health Transformation Fund Grant
Cheshire East Council has confirmed that a Public Health Transformation Fund will become available during 2014/15 following final approval from Cabinet on 22nd July.

Estimated grant value £30,000 – £150,000.

The Fund offers the opportunity to develop prevention and early intervention initiatives, improve health and wellbeing now and over the long term and reduce reliance on ‘treatment’ focussed services. The Fund will provide a dedicated, flexible and time-limited financial resource which will enable residents to access and benefit from innovative approaches to health not previously available to Cheshire East residents through the work of the statutory, voluntary, community, faith and private sectors. Potential applicants should focus on areas of need identified in:


·         The Director of Health’s Annual Report

·         The Health and Wellbeing Board’s Health and Wellbeing Strategy

·         The JSNA.


Proposals should seek to improve outcomes highlighted in the:


·         Public Health Outcomes Framework

·         Outcome 5 of the Council’s 3 Year Plan.


The Fund will not be used to:


·         Fund major capital investment

·         Fund areas which would be more suitably funded through another area of the Council or NHS

·         Offset or substitute other defined service areas, in particular acute hospital, primary or social care interventions

·         Fund non-health improving proposals

·         Provide long term investment

·         Provide funding for people living outside of Cheshire East.
