New Case Studies - Using NHS Grants to Meet Patient Needs
Regional Voices has published three new case studies which show how innovative use of NHS Grants to voluntary organisations can respond to the needs of patients and the public and target health inequalities.
Grants are an important part of the funding mix for voluntary organisations. Many organisations don't have the capacity to compete or deliver large scale contracts but, with a grant, can make significant contributions to improved health outcomes.
We've launched the new case studies to illustrate recent examples of the NHS and the voluntary sector working effectively together to improve people's health and wellbeing in their local community.
In Leeds two Clinical Commissioning Groups have supported the VCS to deliver services, establish partnerships and involve local people in health and wellbeing activities.
In Calderdale the Clinical Commissioning Group and the local VCS infrastructure organisation have worked together to provide a range of grant investment and capacity building support.
In Stockton, Public Health and the Clinical Commissioning Group have partnered with the local VCS infrastructure organisation to deliver a grant programme for new projects.
