Eight projects to benefit from latest BCPP Level 1 funding round

Community Development and Health Network (CDHN) is pleased to announce the eight successful applicants in the latest round of Level One funding for the Building the Community-Pharmacy Partnership (BCPP) programme. 

The groups and pharmacies to benefit from the funding of £2,500 for each project are as follows:

  • Ashes to Gold partnered with Henderson’s Pharmacy Plus, Coleraine
  • Ballymagroarty Hazelbank Community Partnership partnered with Bradley’s Pharmacy, Springtown, Derry/Londonderry
  • Causeway Voluntary Action Trust partnered with Henderson’s Pharmacy Plus, Coleraine
  • Institute of Irish Leadership partnered with McAleer Medical Hall, Pomeroy
  • Lagan Valley Youth & Community Group partnered with Boots the Chemist, Belfast
  • Leonard Cheshire Disability partnered with Johnston’s Pharmacy, Banbridge
  • Melmount Community Forum partnered with Boots Chemist, Strabane
  • VC Glendale Cycling Club partnered with Cooper’s Pharmacy, Belfast

‘We are delighted to fund these eight new partnerships to build relationships between local communities and community pharmacy. The projects will engage across the life course working with new parents, young men and older people to empower them to take control of issues affecting their health and wellbeing. Covid recovery remains a common theme across all applications, as communities focus on addressing the impact of the pandemic on social isolation, physical and mental health.
