Apply for funding NHS Charities Together Grants for the wider NHS and voluntary community dealing with Covid-19. Since the start of the pandemic NHS Charities Together has distributed over £50 million of grant funding to its NHS member charities. NHS charities and the hospitals that they support have benefited enormously from the availability of additional funds to support hospital staff, patients, and their families. Stage 2 grants are aimed at supporting the wider NHS and voluntary community dealing with the impact of COVID-19. Examples of potential projects could be managing the transition of the elderly from hospital to home, mental health support, supporting vulnerable members of the community or end of life care. They may also support early intervention, reducing disparity or focus on preventative health and social care with a focus on diversity within the population. Projects or initiatives that should be covered by core NHS or social care funding or those which are only hospital focussed are not eligible for funding. Stage 2 community partnership grant allocations are based on population figures for Integrated Care System “footprints” in England. Process: 1.
