The VCSE Health and Wellbeing Fund has launched this year with a focus on Starting Well. This is a £3.3m fund, managed by Department of Health and Social Care, Public Health England and NHS England and NHS Improvement and this year’s focus is on existing schemes working with children from preconception to two and a half years old which are looking to expand or develop by delivering new outcomes or to specific communities.
Interested organisations will be able to take part in webinars involving policy leads from the system partners, to hear about the fund and gather further information on what projects and programmes we are specifically interested in funding. Presentations from webinars will be made public, and a set of Frequently Asked Questions will be generated during the application process; both will be shared online for reference.
There will be two webinars, and you are strongly advised to register to attend one. Registration will be limited to one person per organisation, and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Webinars will take place on:
- 8 September 2020, 2-3pm
- 10 September 2020, 2-3pm
