The Dorset Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and Local Authorities, supported by the Public Health team, are very keen to build on the success of the 2012 Olympics in Dorset and have developed a legacy fund to provide a significant resource for investment in innovative and evidence based local projects in Dorset, Bournemouth and Poole.
The aim of the legacy fund is to create a legacy and inspire communities by investing in projects that focus on the particularly vulnerable, marginalised and deprived communities in order to address health inequalities which exist in Dorset.
- Target vulnerable people or marginalised communities
- Tackle identified health inequalities
- Inspire people towards a healthier lifestyle
- Have a lasting legacy
The next round of funding is now open and closes on 30 January 2015.
