HRUK Announces Application Windows for Healthy Heart Grants

Heart Research UK (HRUK) will be offering grants of up to £15,000 again this year to registered charities and community interest companies (CICs) in the UK with an annual income of less than £1 million.

The funding is for new projects that work with communities to prevent heart disease, particularly for vulnerable and isolated groups of individuals (adults) who are at an increased risk of developing heart problems in the future. Projects that are likely to have a big impact and have considered novel ways to encourage people to look after their hearts and promote positive lifestyle changes are also sought.

Activities must have a primary focus on one or more of the following four risk factors for heart disease:

  • Nutrition and Healthy Eating.
  • Physical Activity.
  • Smoking.
  • Alcohol.

The funding can support salaries, overhead expenses/on costs and equipment that is necessary for the successful delivery of the project which should be for at least three months but no more than 12 months.

The funding rotates around the UK at different times of the year.

The 2024 application windows are:

  • Wales (27 March to 24 April).
  • England North (8 May to 5 June).
  • England South (12 June to 10 July).
  • Scotland (17 July to 14 August).
  • Northern Ireland (21 August to 18 September).

This is a competitive grant scheme as there is a funding pot of £15,000 for each region.

Applications will open for Wales on 27 March 2024.
