Walking for Health Fund 2018 – 2019

Section: The ALLIANCEType: News Item Date Published: 13th July 2018

Paths for All is pleased to announce the launch of this year’s Walking for Health (WfH) Grant Fund.

Paths for All are now accepting expressions of interest for funding for Health Walk projects or related activities.  Projects must include delivery of a weekly Health Walk.

Constituted groups, registered charities, community interest companies, public sector or statutory bodies, health and social care partnerships, health boards, schools, universities, colleges, and private sector organisations working in Scotland can apply for grants of up to £10,000 to help work towards these outcomes in their own communities.

This fund aims to:

  • Increase the number of new walkers taking part in Health Walks in Scotland
  • Increase the amount of physical activity undertaken by people in Scotland (especially those experiencing health inequality)
  • Improve wellbeing or reduce ill-health

Projects can apply for the cost of initiatives that encourage people at any stage of life to walk more. The project might focus on a particular target group or range of groups, or on a specific geographical area. Paths for All welcome new and innovative approaches as well as tested models of delivery but the project must include the delivery of at least one weekly Health Walk in the proposal.

Expression of Interest Forms should be submitted no later than Friday 3 August 2018, with application forms to be in by Friday 31 August 2018. Applicants will be told whether their application has been successful by the end of October/beginning of November 2018.

Full details are available on the Paths For All website (this link will take you away from our website) and in the WfH Application Guidance Notes.
