There have been concerns raised at the briefing sessions held about the word limits on some of the questions in the application. To take into account these concerns we have decided to raise the word limit on the first two questions. This means that in Application Form Part B;
- Question 1.1 now has a word limit of 750 words (was 500)
- Question 1.2 now has a word limit of 750 words (was 500)
Please note that the word limits on all the other questions remain as they were. We hope that you will find this word limit increase helpful.

The Communities and Families Main Revenue Grants Programme for 2020-23 is now open.
The social capital element of the Edinburgh HIF 2019-2022 has been included in the Edinburgh Integrated Joint Board (IJB) grants programme. Therefore the HIF will now have a specific focus on early years support and early interventions for children and young people. The main areas of work will concentrate on mental wellbeing and resilience among children and young people, and parenting and attachment. Further detail on this will be provided through the procurement process.
In consultation with third sector partners, a decision has been made to delay the HIF application process until after the outcome of the Edinburgh IJB grants is known. It is anticipated therefore that the HIF funding portal will go live on Monday 7th January 2019 and remain open until 12pm on Monday 4th February 2019.
The final HIF funding decisions will be made by Friday 22nd February 2019.
If you wish to bid for this funding please ensure you have registered with the Public Contracts Scotland Portal as soon as possible: https://www.publiccontractsscotland.gov.uk/register/register_start.aspx.
A ‘meet the funders’ event will be held on Tuesday 15th January 2019 from 2-4pm (at The Sanctuary, Augustine United Church, George IV Bridge, Edinburgh) where NHS Lothian Procurement will outline the process of making a funding application and there will be an opportunity to discuss any issues.
If you have any queries about this please contact Kerry.Murray@nhslothian.scot.nhs.uk.
