Sussex NHS Charities funding

Thanks to NHS Charities Together, Heads On is lead charity for all Sussex NHS charities. As part of this new role, Heads On managed grant round for NHS Charities Together funding in Sussex, and is responsible for distributing funding to the 10 third sector partners. These partners will deliver projects in collaboration with the NHS charities, developing and sustaining partnerships to enhance healthcare across Sussex.

We are so grateful to NHS Charities Together for awarding Heads On £830,000 to address health inequalities, suicide prevention, and supportive hospital discharge across Sussex.

The grant from NHS Charities Together is part of their Community Partnerships Fund, aiming to support the wider NHS and voluntary community dealing with Covid-19, reducing stress on the NHS and provide wrap around provision for individuals and communities which is vitally needed.

The 10 partners (formed of hospices, care homes and charities) were selected following an open competitive grant making process, where organisations were asked to submit proposals to deliver projects that addressed the priority areas mentioned above.

The successful partners are as follows:

Martlets Hospice
The Trust for Developing Communities
The Crew Club
4Sight Vision Support
Demelza Hospice Care for Children
