Community Cash Fund

Grants of up to £1,000 available for local people to improve wellbeing in their community

Up to £1,000 is available to local people and groups for new ideas that explore people’s experiences of local health and care services and improve wellbeing in their community.

“If you have an idea that will help local people to speak up about local health services, that will boost their wellbeing, this is your chance to make it happen. You don’t have to be from a registered charity or group – all projects will be judged on merit.” Jacquie Pond, Healthwatch Surrey Engagement Officer.

Please ensure you read the application FAQs before completing the Application Form.

Applications must be received by  Friday 8th September 2017. Winners will be announced on 16th September 2017.
