Current Prospectuses

A Public Health Service Prospectus:

Adult Community Weight Loss Management Services 2011– 2012

The Island’s Public Health Service needs partner organisations who can help deliver an important outcome in return for grant funding.

Obesity is associated with some of the most prevalent diseases of modern society. Excess weight puts people at risk of developing heart disease, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure and causes of cancer. In return for grant funding, we want adults who are overweight (BMI>25 to BMI <39) to be supported to achieve weight loss through accessible programmes that are free or low cost to participants.

The total funding available is £30,000 which may be awarded to one or more partner organisations. This funding is to be used within 12 months of an award being made.
