The health board’s community innovation fund aims to help community groups to develop local projects.

Advice sessions are being offered at Ninewells Hospital, The Crescent, Fairfield Community Hub, Cair Scotland and Lochee Community Hub on September 10, 12, 14, 17 and 19 respectively between noon-2pm.

Financed through Tayside Health Fund, community groups can apply for any amount between £500-£25,000.

Richard McIntosh, community capacity building officer with NHS Tayside, said: “Projects which have been supported by the community innovation fund are hosting the drop-in sessions.

“I would encourage anyone with an innovative idea or potential project that aims to improve their local community to come along to one of our sessions.”
