Imperial Health Charity launches Compassionate Communities grants programme

Aug 17, 2023 | Uncategorized

Imperial Health Charity  is pleased to announce the launch of Compassionate Communities 2023/24, following the success of the first Compassionate Communities pilot in 2020/21. This call is aimed at organisations providing support and care activities that improve the health and wellbeing of northwest London residents waiting for or struggling to access health care services.

The programme has two focus areas:

  • Prehabilitation – projects that provide ongoing physical and mental health support to residents who are waiting to access healthcare services
  • Peer support and community groups – projects that bring people together with shared healthcare and community experience to provide support and advice to others.

Types of projects we are looking to support, include:

  • projects that help northwest London residents improve their understanding of health and the health care system, and how to navigate it
  • projects that promote and educate on having healthy lifestyles, such as physical and mental health activities, and healthy diets.

Funding requests must:

  • be for a minimum of £5,000 and maximum of £50,000
  • be for a minimum of 12 months and up to 24 months, to include set-up and evaluation periods
  • directly support and impact northwest London residents across any of our 8 boroughs
  • be for new, or expand on a current, provision (not just fund current provision)

The deadline for applications is 12 pm Wednesday 1 November.

Please visit our website for further information on Compassionate Communities including key dates, how to apply, taking the eligibility quiz, programme guidelines, and sample application form.

Please feel free to forward this email to colleagues and other not-for-profit organisations known to you that work in our 8 north west London boroughs (Brent, Ealing, Hammersmith and Fulham Harrow, Hounslow, Hillingdon, Kensington and Chelsea, and Westminster).
