Mother and baby health and wellbeing funding
2 September, 2020

 

The government has launched a Health and Wellbeing Fund to support VCSE organisations working with mothers and babies from Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities or deprived neighbourhoods. 

Money will go towards community projects that improve perinatal mental health, learning and speech and language development or immunisation rates, or projects that prevent low birth weight, obesity and/or smoking. The aim of the funding is to improve health outcomes and reduce health inequalities.

Under normal circumstances there are many community organisations that don't apply for National Lottery grants, as the money given away is raised from gambling. However, the National Lottery Community Fund is responsible for distributing the government's Coronavirus Community Response Fund - an important source of emergency funding during the pandemic for small to medium organisations, with £200m available.

The Henry Smith Charity "Improving Lives" grant programme provides grants to charitable organisations that help people when other sources of support have failed, are inappropriate, or are simply not available.
