Grants available to help showcase patient involvement and engagement

Categories: Community Engagement.

Grants of up to £1,000 are available to support organisations to share how they have been working to involve and engage the public to improve services.

The idea behind the community grants programme is to showcase good practice around patient and citizen involvement in healthcare.

NHS England is encouraging non-for-profit organisations to “tell the story” of their public involvement work in “creative and interesting ways”. They suggest this could take the form of a film, animation, play, photo or audio book or poster.

However, materials must be in a format that can be shared online as NHS England plans to make all final products publicly available via its online Learning and Sharing hub.

Whatever the format used, NHS England states that the materials must be developed and ready to share by 4 January 2016.

The deadline to apply is noon on 28 September 2015.
