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. 

Projects can benefit pregnant mothers, or those with children aged up to two and a half years old, and each project can last three years. To be eligible, your organisation must have already supported the target demographic for at least three years.
