Summary of report content

In February 2019, Healthwatch Wiltshire launched a Community Cash Fund scheme to enable local groups to apply for a grant to start health and wellbeing projects in their local community.

They received 41 applications for funds of up to £2,000, and five projects were chosen to receive a grant. As well as encouraging healthier lifestyles, these projects also provided a way for Healthwatch Wiltshire to get more feedback on local services from people they might not otherwise hear from, and during 2019/20 they collected many valuable insights from people who took part. All five of the projects have demonstrated real benefits to those who took part and two have been able to secure additional funding to continue their work.

The report outlines the five successful projects and the outcomes each was able to achieve with the funding.
