Health and Social Care Local Grants Scheme Second Round Opens
Posted on: April 19 2011, 04:41 pm

The Health and Social Care (HSCVF) local grant scheme has been developed to make a positive contribution to the Department of Health's (DH) objectives.

This second local round of HSCVF funding aims to build on the success of the 2010 local grant scheme by reaching more local Voluntary Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) organisations.

The fund also aims to increase the DH's investment in volunteering by directly supporting the integration of volunteering into the delivery of DH priorities. In 2010 a total of 550,000 was awarded to 43 successful projects, and a similar number will be supported in this round.

The fund supports the Big Society agenda in the health and adult social care field, as well as the key priorities for the health and social care sector, including the Health White Paper Equity and Excellence: Liberating the NHS and supporting the developing Vision for Social Care and the public health strategy Healthy Lives, Healthy People: Our Strategy for Public Health in England. It will open up funding opportunities to more organisations and help systematically embed volunteering in health and social care.

Organisations which are successful in receiving funding will still be expected to work closely with local statutory providers and deliver services in their local communities.

The grant programme will be highly competitive, and funding will go to projects that have maximum impact in the development of new, improved and/or streamlined systems in health and social care volunteering rather than projects that can simply supply additional services.

The maximum HSCVF grant available is 50,000 per project over three years.

Maximum grant amounts for each year (subject to annual parliamentary approval) are:

    * 2011/2012 - 10,000.
    * 2012/2013 - 20,000.
    * 2013/2014 - 20,000.

The application portal is now open until noon on Wednesday 25 May 2011.
