The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC), NHS England and Improvement, and Public Health England (PHE) are inviting applications from voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations to join the VCSE health and wellbeing fund Starting Well.

Projects must:

  • have run for at least 3 years
  • develop or expand services for children from preconception to 2-and-a-half years old, so they receive the best possible start in life
  • be focused on improving health outcomes in black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) communities or areas of high deprivation (including urban, rural and coastal areas)

The deadline for applications is midday on Friday 30 October 2020.


How to submit your application?

Your application form and supporting documents should be sent via e-mail to startingwell@dhsc.gov.uk no later than Friday 16 October 2020 at 12 noon. Applications received after this time, even for circumstances beyond the applicants' control, will not be accepted.

Electronic copies of your annual report and final accounts, or links to your website/the Charity Commission website, are required. It is not possible to submit hard copies currently.
