  • ENRaW focusing on improving the quality of the local environment and creating sustainable green infrastructure; and

  • HAF supporting projects that can access and make use of these areas to encourage healthy and active lifestyles

In each case, the new grants focus on encouraging collaborative projects that will deliver a range of multiple benefits and improved outcome across the well-being goals, leading to longer term sustainability and new models of delivery. The teams operating the grants will continue to work closely to ensure that clear links between the schemes and the activities they support are made.
