Community grants: celebrating participation in healthcare

Has your community or voluntary group been working to involve patients and the public in improving health care services?

Have you got some good practice to share?

NHS England is launching a new community grant opportunity. NHS England is seeking to make grant awards to showcase good practice around patient and citizen participation in healthcare. We know that there is really excellent patient and public involvement work happening all around the country and we want to do more to share and learn from what is happening locally.

NHS England will be awarding a number of small community grants to not for profit organisations who can tell the story of their patient and citizen engagement work in a creative and interesting way. This can be in a wide variety of ways; videos, photo or audio books, leaflets and posters, graphics or other formats.

Grants are available of up to £1,000 each, the total funds available are £10,000.
