The “Realising the Value Programme” allows NHS England to award grants of up to £500,000 to charities and not for profit organisations (or consortia) to identify and / or implement evidence-based approaches to self-care. Initiatives involving the commissioning and spread of such approaches could be supported similarly.
The aim is to stimulate evidence-based approaches and tools to promote systems, across the NHS and local communities, which support people with long term conditions to better manage their own health.
“Grants are only made to charities and not for profit organisations; any charity, not for profit organisation, social enterprise, community interest company or public sector body can apply for this grant”.
