In this round the panel wishes to promote improved health and wellbeing, care and independence of members of Hull’s BME and migrant communities by:

  • Supporting and facilitating better access to services that promote improved health and wellbeing, care and independence
  • Raising awareness among BME and migrant communities about eligibility and access to services that promote improved health and wellbeing, care and independence
  • Enabling members of BME and migrant communities to overcome the barriers they face to improved health and wellbeing, care and independence

The panel invites applications from:

  • projects and services that promote BME and migrant communities’ improved health and wellbeing, care and independence
  • and from those that need to enable increased access to their services by BME and migrant communities

Eligible projects must be targeted at people aged 16+ living in Hull, and/or registered with a Hull GP.
