The aim of the Fund is to promote equality and reduce health inequalities by building the evidence base about good practice, sharing lessons and widening the adoption of interventions with a proven track record. Each funding round focusses on a different theme. Previous rounds have focused on social prescribing, children’s and young people’s mental health and starting well.
The current round focuses on paediatric respiratory infections.
Grants of between £75,000 and £300,000 per organisation are available and will cover the period from receipt of grant to 31 March 2022.
Funding is intended to:
- Provide extra support for families and children’s respiratory services to support national and local response to increases in paediatric respiratory infections.
- Raise awareness of respiratory infections, provide advice on how to navigate NHS services and provide families and communities with information about early detection and management.
- Support people with children suffering from respiratory infections, especially where they may not have access to any other support.
