The Centre for Medical Engineering (CME) at King’s College London have launched a new fund to support community engagement with health research in Lambeth and Southwark.
This fund will help support local communities to develop and deliver projects and programmes that are community led, health focused and increase community participation and collaboration.
Funding can be used to:
- Develop new or existing initiatives, exploring and supporting the health of their local communities.
- Produce opportunities for their communities to engage in activities around their health and wellbeing.
- Develop community health knowledge and assets with ability for sharing.
Particular health focus areas are the heart, brain and different cancers, and the funder is particularly interested in projects that cover these areas and how they are affecting the health and wellbeing of the local community – although this is not exclusive. Projects can be new, but they can also build on existing activity.
- Applicants should be local community organisations, and groups based in Lambeth and Southwark
- Lead organisations or groups that apply need to have a business account as project funds cannot be placed into individual or personal bank accounts.
- This could include charities, Community Interest Companies, community voluntary services or other not for profit community organisations.
- An individual may apply with a community partner who can administer the fund money.
The fund provides a total pot of £15,000 to support up to 4 grants of between £2,000 – 5,000 each
The deadline for applications is 5pm Tuesday 3rd January 2023.
Application surgery sessions (up to an hour) are available up until Monday 19th December, to discuss your idea with the Community Engagement Officer, Deanne Naula. If you would like a meeting, please email to arrange a time, email@example.com or call 020 7848 9649.
