NHS Wandsworth Community Grants Programme

We are delighted to announce that our NHS Community Grants programme is open for applications

The NHS Wandsworth Community Grants programme aims to support closer working relationships between small, developing, voluntary and community organisations and your local NHS. Through the grant programme which includes workshops, learning opportunities and networking events, voluntary and community organisations will learn about the local NHS and develop an understanding of how their own organisation fits and contributes.  

We encourage potential applicants to create and test a new project idea which can be supported by a grant of up to £2,500. Applications must be for new ideas not existing or core activity.  

We are open for applications from Monday 5th July 2021.

If you are interested in learning more, please register to attend our NHS Wandsworth Community Grants information and workshop day on Thursday 22nd July 2021 10.30-3pm – Please submit a brief outline for feedback at the event by emailing: naomi.good@swlondon.nhs.uk  

Choose to address one of two themes or a combination:  

You can apply for funding to deliver a project which responds directly to the following themes:  

•           Recovering to thriving post Covid-19 

We are interested in supporting projects that respond to the loss communities have experienced and their specific needs after Covid-19. We are keen to support creative ideas for reaching and supporting people who are experiencing ongoing impacts of the Covid-19 virus. 

For example, standalone projects to support people who are experiencing Post-Covid and/or those who have experienced loss / grief during the pandemic.    

•           Virtual health and wellbeing: reducing digital exclusion.  

We are interested in supporting digital projects supporting people who have experienced barriers when accessing healthcare for example people with sensory and/or physical impairments, cultural or social barriers or those who may not speak English as their first language. We would like to hear your ideas and learning from the pandemic and plans for the future. Perhaps you have an idea for a hybrid model of on and offline health and wellbeing support.

Applications will need to include a clear description of the digital barriers they are seeking to address and the specific groups of people they will work with. You will need to include in your application how the learning from this project will support a specific group of people to access healthcare.
