Inspiring Scotland - Healthy Islands Fund
The Healthy Islands Fund (HIF) is an investment from the Scottish Government to further support improvement of outcomes for island communities in Scotland. Funding will contribute to delivery of Strategic Objective 7 of the National Islands Plan, which aims to improve and promote health, social care and wellbeing for those living in Scottish island communities.
The Fund will support community-led initiatives that promote healthier lifestyles on the islands. The three aims of the Fund are:
- To create opportunities for everyone to be active, whoever they are, wherever they live and whatever their background.
- To create and/or support mental health care at a grassroot island level, taking into consideration the uniqueness of their community.
- To use the natural environment to support islanders to make daily choices to support their wellbeing, by creating attractive and well connected places for recreation that are resilient and sustainable in line with Net Zero ambitions.
Projects must be delivered by March 2022.
