KentCAN Funding Alert - 19th July

KentCAN Funding Alert - 19th July

 

Our latest funding bulletin is available to read online, containing grants that community groups, charities, companies, local authorities and individuals can apply for.   

Work and Health Challenge Fund

The Work and Health Unit (WHU), which is jointly managed by the Department for Work and Pensions and the Department of Health and Social Care, is using a £4.2m Challenge Fund to test new approaches that can help people experiencing mental health and/or musculoskeletal (MSK) issues stay in work.

WHU are looking to fund around twenty Initiatives which will improve their understanding of what works in one or more of the following areas:

  • Helping people stay in work by increasing their ability to self-manage their conditions.
  • Helping people access advice and support about what sort of work they might be capable of doing given their wider needs and circumstances.
  • Developing new approaches to help employers and individuals develop workplace solutions, or ways of working that facilitate greater participation of people experiencing these conditions.
  • Improving systems by joining up services to strengthen communication, liaison or joint action.

It is hoped that the evidence gathered through the Challenge Fund will enable the WHU to develop and deliver policies that enable people with mental health and/or MSK conditions to stay in work, or reduce the incidence and average durations of long-term sickness absence from work.

Closing date: 17th August
