Expressions of Interest sought for the CYP transformation programme

Beyond: the Cheshire and Merseyside Children and Young People’s Transformation Programme was established during 2021/2022. The aim of the programme is to: Give every Child and Young Person the best possible start in life, maximising opportunities to reach their potential; listen to their voices, respond to their needs and transform their services, outcomes and life chances through integrated work across the Partnership. The programme is focused on a population health approach, with a “shift left” in delivery towards early intervention and prevention.

Expressions of interest are now being sought from organisations to deliver projects in support of the Beyond Programme’s objectives to deliver transformational change through integration and early intervention across six workstreams:

  • Healthy Weight and Obesity
  • Learning Disability, Difficulty and Autism
  • Diabetes
  • Epilepsy
  • Respiratory and Asthma
  • Emotional Wellbeing and Mental Health.

Bids are sought from single organisations or partnerships to fund either the piloting of new projects to test proof of concept or to implement a project that has already been delivered either elsewhere in Cheshire and Merseyside or beyond where there is already a body of evidence to demonstrate impact. They are keen to see how any projects would address health inequalities in local communities and work with the third sector.

They are particularly interested in projects that are aligned to the Healthy Weight and Obesity and Learning Disability, Difficulty and Autism workstreams as these are areas where there has been less programme investment. In annexe, one provides details of specific projects they are keen to explore.

Each EOI can be up to £50,000, with the expectation of delivery over a 12-month period. All funding will be paid 2022/23 and any delivery that goes beyond the end of the financial year must be managed by the bidding organisations.
