Community Call to Action Programme

Following an initial round of grants, a small surplus remains under the Health and Wellbeing Community Call to Action Programme. As such, we are seeking Expressions of Interest (EOI) from organisations that are able to deliver short-term projects in the areas of Dementia and Carer Support.

The aim of this EOI round is to seek proposals for projects that will deliver actions against the prescribed themes within a 6 month timeframe. As this is a follow-up round to the primary call for applications, there are limited funds available:
