The Voluntary Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) Health and Wellbeing Fund 2021/22 is now live. The fund has a focus on providing support to families and children’s services due to a predicted increase in paediatric respiratory viral infections during autumn/winter 2021.
Funding is available for both local and national VCSE organisations that are already delivering existing services that can be expanded to provide additional support for children, families and children’s respiratory and acute services during autumn/winter 2021. As well as raise awareness of the management of respiratory infections within communities that experience the greatest health inequalities.
This is a short-term fund, with all funding to be spent by the end of March 2022. The fund is jointly run by the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC), Public Health England (PHE), NHS England and NHS Improvement.
