We have created the Community Ambition funding programme in partnership with the Suffolk & North East Essex Integrated Care System (SNEE ICS) with very specific criteria to reduce health inequalities in ethnically diverse and deprived communities impacted disproportionately by COVID-19 in Suffolk and North East Essex.
NHS Charities Together have allocated £445,772 to the Suffolk & North East Essex ICS, to be managed through a grant programme by Colchester & Ipswich Hospitals Charity.
Groups, communities, and charities are invited submit an Expression of Interest to propose projects and solutions that fit the criteria for this funding.
If you or your organisation would like to be considered for funding, please download and complete the Expression of Interest form. Please email completed applications to CommunityAmbition@esneft.nhs.uk by Monday 26 October 2020.
