tackling health inequalities in The East Riding and North Lincolnshire
Hull charity receives thousands of pounds funding

A two-year project in Hull has received a £49,360 funding boost.
 
Community organisation, No Limit, will use the cash to provide weekday drop-in facilities aimed at hard to reach and disadvantaged young people.
 
Participants will be able to access various video games, pool tables, DJ facilities as well as practical courses that lead to NVQs and accredited qualifications. The project aims to encourage young people to learn new skills, address isolation and reduce the risk of offending.
 
Using money raised by HealthWin CIC, through The Health Lottery, grants have been awarded by People’s Health Trust through Active Communities, a funding programme which invests in local people and groups.
 
Chris Lunn, director of HealthWin CIC, said: “This project is extremely valuable to a wide range of individuals across this region; we look forward to hearing more about how the initiative has allowed people to live longer healthier lives.”
 
HealthWin CIC has raised £818,676, through The Health Lottery, for health-related good causes in East Riding and North Lincolnshire.
 
John Hume, chief executive of People’s Health Trust, said: “We are delighted to be investing in these local organisations with great ideas to make their communities even better places to grow, live, work and age.”
 
Active Communities is for community groups and not-for-profit organisations’ with an income of less than £350,000 a year that are seeking investment of between £5,000 and £50,000 a year, for projects lasting up to two years.
