We are pleased to announce the launch of the South Liverpool Community Connect Fund. This fund, a partnership between Capacity and LCVS, will help voluntary sector organisations working in, or connected to, South Liverpool to support GP practices to connect their patients to community assets.
There is an increasing number of people presenting to their GP with non medical needs. This is leaving patients and GPs feeling frustrated. We know there is a wealth of community assets sitting across South Liverpool; however, patients are not connecting with them as well as they could.
We are looking to commission a lead agency in South Liverpool that can help develop a local partnership with other small to medium voluntary, community and faith (VCF) organisations in the area to help design and test a solution to this problem. There is £25k available and it is expected that this will be used to help fund local activity that connects patients with local VCF organisations.
The successful applicant will work across primary care settings in the south of Liverpool to engage residents with community activity, working in partnership with other small to medium VCF organisations.
For more detailed guidance, and to apply, please visit the South Liverpool Community Connect page.
The closing date for applications is Monday 8th April 2019 at 5.00 pm.Back to blog
