Fund title: Celebrating participation in healthcare community grants

Focus of fund/fund aims:

To share good practice around involving patients and citizens in healthcare services

Application deadline:

31 October 2017

Fund description:

NHS England is offering community grants of up to £2,000 to voluntary/community sector organisations that have developed good practice around patient and citizen participation in healthcare.

The funding is to be used to showcase a project that has already been done, to share with others what has worked, how patients and citizens were involved and what impact participation had on services. Organisations should be able to tell their story in a creative, appealing and accessible way.

Applications can be made by community groups, voluntary sector or patient organisations, and not-for-profit organisations, including charities and community interest companies. NHS bodies, local authorities and companies run by local authorities cannot apply for the grants, but they can be partners in the project.
