Jan 9, 2023 | Uncategorized

North London Adult Eating Disorder Provider Collaborative (NLAED PC) is working with Central and North West London (which includes Ealing and Hounslow) to offer grants under the NL AED Transformation Programme. We are seeking North London Based organisations (which includes Ealing and Hounslow) specialising in the delivery of specialist eating disorder care and support for a 12-18-month partnership delivery role. This grant process can offer successful partners up to £75,000 in funding to support adult eating disorder projects

What are the parameter’s

  • This must be used for VCSE provider contracts integrated into the local service provider pathways.
  • Proposals must focus on the NL AED PC priority areas, as detailed below.
  • The offer must be co-produced with the local community, service users and carers.

How much?

  • A dedicated amount of up to £75k per London region. (NEL/NWL/NCL)
  • Identified as underspend within the provider collaborative budget so non-recurrent but able to be used with VCSE in 12-18 month contracts.

What is the process and support?

What can the funding be used for?

If successful in being offered a ‘partner’ position you will then work with NLAED PC and the wider system to either scale up a current project that is proven to work OR by extending a current project OR developing new or different ways to work better between organisations.  All partners will need attend partnership sub-group meetings as relevant.
