Small grants to promote health in your company now available from Lisburn and Castlereagh City Council

  • The Lisburn and Castlereagh City Council has opened its Investing in Health Profit in Business Small Grants Scheme for applications, with a deadline of Monday 4th February for applications.

    If you run a business in the Lisburn and Castlereagh City Council catchment area and want to help promote healthy decisions among your employees, the Investing in Health Profit in Business Small Grants Scheme can help. The scheme has opened again for applications and can be used to fund a wide range of small workplace health and wellbeing initiatives for employees.
    Examples of initiatives the scheme has funded in the past include providing regular deliveries of fruit for your office, providing healthy breakfasts for employees, taking time as a business to attend a fitness class, or hiring a trainer to run sessions for staff. The scheme won't cover costs associated with travel, general team-building exercises, membership fees, or beauty treatments.

    Employers are expected to reap the benefits of this programme just as much as their employees, through lower employee illness, reduced rates of chronic health issues, better job satisfaction, and lower staff turnover. These factors can all improve productivity and save money in the long term.

    If you're in the Lisburn and Castlereagh City Council catchment area and have an idea for a small health initiative you'd like to introduce into your workplace, contact Emma Donaghy, Economic Development Officer on 02892 447 381 or send an email to with the details by Monday 4th February. Your employees will thank you for it!
