Work and Health Unit (WHU) – £4.2m Challenge Fund

Aug 3, 2018 | Funding

The Work and Health Unit (WHU), which is jointly managed by the Department for Work and Pensions and the Department of Health and Social Care, is using a £4.2m Challenge Fund to test new approaches that can help people experiencing mental health and/or musculoskeletal (MSK) issues stay in work.
We are looking to fund around twenty Initiatives which will improve our understanding of what works in one or more of the following areas:

    • Helping people stay in work by increasing their ability to self-manage their conditions.
    • Helping people access advice and support about what sort of work they might be capable of doing given their wider needs and circumstances.
    • Developing new approaches to help employers and individuals develop workplace solutions, or ways of working that facilitate greater participation of people experiencing these conditions.
  • Improving systems by joining up services to strengthen communication, liaison or joint action.

We welcome applications from employers, charities, social enterprises, local authorities, health bodies and others from across England, Scotland and Wales.
The deadline for receipt of Challenge Fund applications is Friday 16th August at 17.00. Projects are anticipated to run between October 2018 and February 2020.
