Co-design for health and wealth is a HEIF funded project led by Professor Leon Cruickshank from Lancaster University.

This is an excellent opportunity for organisations to create projects in collaboration with Lancaster University to not only further research but also provide tangible benefits for your local community.

Working with various public, health, private, and third sector organisations we facilitate the creation of cross-sector collaborative project ideas and assist you through the process of developing your idea, writing the bid, and submitting for funding.

This initiative is mainly based in Blackburn with Darwen, Blackpool & Fylde, and also our local communities of Morecambe and Lancaster.


Our workshops are an opportunity to meet other like-minded people from across various sectors and create collaborations on exciting new projects to benefit the health and wealth of your local communities. Each workshop has a theme for you to learn knowledge and skills which will help you create, write, and successfully fund your bid.

Refreshments will be provided and there will be a chance for networking over a buffet lunch.


During the morning session you will learn about project development, including how to scale your project for growth from a pilot project to one which is fully realised.

After lunch will be an opportunity to discuss project ideas and spend time working with potential project partners to create initial bid proposals. Those who are already writing bids will have time and space for focused work on their proposals.
