  • HMR CCG Local Health Grants

    HMR CCG prides itself on finding innovative ways to improve the health and wellbeing of the borough.

    Over the last two years, we have given one-off grants totalling £2.5 million to local community and voluntary groups to fund more than 150 projects with a health benefit.

    To receive a grant through the Social Investment Fund, projects have to demonstrate health and community benefits to the Rochdale borough through:

    • Promoting and supporting a healthy lifestyle and independence
    • Supporting new mothers and families around breastfeeding
    • Supporting women around breast cancer screening
    • Supporting people with dementia including carers and families
    • Supporting people with learning disabilities including carers and families
    • Supporting people to manage their own health and wellbeing
    • Promoting mental wellbeing

    In 2012/13, £1 million was shared between 69 projects.

    In 2013/14, £1 million of grants was awarded for new projects and £500,000 was shared between those schemes from the previous year that were able to demonstrate meeting their targets. This will enable local projects and initiatives that have made a real impact on local health to continue or extend their work.

    Each year, the CCG governing body decides the level of funding and focus for the Social Investment Fund criteria.

  • NHS HMR CCG’s Social Investment Fund 2013/4 Phase Two

    October 2013 saw charities, community and voluntary groups in Rochdale borough being invited to apply for grant funding for health related community projects. The Charity Service were delighted to be appointed as grant administrators for the second consecutive year. Utilising our unique expertise and independent trustee board we worked with our NHS partners to help distribute circa £1.5 million into the third sector.


    Ian Mello, Director of Commissioning and Provider Management, said

    “Partners since 2012, The Charity Service have worked with us supporting the design and delivery of our third sector Social Investment Fund grant programme. They are a specialist charity who are uniquely placed to support public sector grant programmes. They are an invaluable source of independent expertise and exhibit flair and flexibility as a provider. I would recommend NHS partners to explore what they have to offer as part of the care and support agenda.”    


    Dr Chris Duffy, local GP and Chair of NHS HMR CCG, said

    “Last year we gave grants worth a total of £1 million to more than 69 local voluntary, charity and community groups through our social investment fund scheme. The health benefits have been huge and we have seen some fantastic schemes really making a difference to local people’s lives – from the Rochdale Carers’ Choir to a scheme supporting young people with disabilities to complete their Duke of Edinburgh award. After the success of last year, we are keen to offer this opportunity again to more groups who can help and support local people to become healthier and have a better future.”
