Children are eating more than twice the recommended amount of sugar, leading to tooth decay and serious illnesses. Change4Life’s Sugar Swap campaign highlights some simple swaps to everyday food and drinks to cut back on sugar.
The council is offering £20,000 to organisations working with families in Westminster and Kensington and Chelsea, to deliver activities that cut back on sugar and promote healthy eating.
Organisations can apply for up to £500 for one-off events, or up to £1,000 for activities that take place over several sessions. This can include purchasing equipment or additional staffing. Priority will be given to activities that reach children and families most at risk of poor health.
The grant scheme will close when all funding has been committed so early applications are advised. We will aim to inform you of the outcome of your application within 5 working days.
If you would like to discuss your idea before applying, please email email@example.com.
To apply, your organisation must be able to legally receive funds from the local authority. You need to have a UK bank account and a track record of delivering services to children and families in Westminster or Kensington and Chelsea. Only one grant per organisation.
