NHG Wellbeing Foundation – apply now!

Published - 2 December 2019

The Wellbeing Foundation is open for new applications.
The Wellbeing Foundation is the grant giving arm of NHG and helps sustain, empower and create great places for our residents.

Organisations that can help create local impact and benefit, are encouraged to apply to the foundation, with over £266,230.03 having been distributed across 9 organisations during the last funding round in July 2019.

Jeremy Stibbe (centre, wearing glasses), group director of regeneration and assets, poses with some of the grant recipients.

Successful bidders will have to demonstrate how their projects benefit NHG residents in London and south East England. We also encourage applications to demonstrate how their project can benefit the wider community. 

The foundation considers applications which benefit residents in one or more of the following themes:
•    Financial Inclusion
•    Employment, enterprise and training
•    Digital engagement
•    Health and wellbeing
•    Social research
•    Volunteering

Organisations running projects in their communities can apply for a small grant of up to £5,000 or a larger one of up to £50,000.

The deadline to apply for a small grant has now passed but we are still inviting applications for the large grant. The closing date for this is 10th January 2020 and decisions will be made by April 2020. 

All applications must be sponsored by a current NHG employee. If you do not have a contact in NHG, please email gwf@nhg.org.uk before sending in your application. We cannot guarantee to find you a sponsor.

If you would like to find out more about this, please contact the Wellbeing Foundation on gwf@nhg.org.uk
