Grants available for health and well-being projects

24th October 2018

Grants of up to £5,000 are available to support charitable projects that help to improve the health and well-being of people living in Essex, Southend and Thurrock. 

Provide delivers a wide range of community health services across Essex and in Cambridgeshire (including Peterborough), Suffolk and Norfolk as well as the London borough of Waltham Forest.

This Fund was set up with ECF in 2012 and awards grants annually to support the many voluntary and community organisations whose work complements their own.

Your application must demonstrate one of the following areas of work:

  • To help keep people out of hospital
  • To help people leave hospital more quickly
  • To help people stay healthy in their community
  • To improve health and wellbeing in the community
  • To maximise use of technology which will improve the way your service users access your services

How to apply:

We are holding a Phone-In Funding Surgery on Friday 16 November. Please call us, on the day, between 10am and 12 noon to tell grant officers about your work.
