Over December 2016 people in South West Edinburgh were given the opportunity to vote on what community health projects they would like funded.

Projects were to be for no more than £5000 and must demonstrate how they meet the health needs of the community.

Voting was launched at a health promotion event at St Martin's Resource Centre in Dalry on 30th November, and was availible across South West Edinburgh between 28 Nov and 16 Dec in libraries, community centres, high schools, and churches. The result is shown above.

We've now closed the applications and voting, but if you have any questions please get in touch.

You can keep up to date with future Health Matters developments by following the @Southwest_team Twitter and watching out for #SWHealthMatters .


The money will be allocated by the South West Neighbourhood Partnership from their community grants fund budget, with additional funding from the Scottish Government. As a result groups making an application should read the Community Grants Fund Guidance and Conditions of Funding.
