Essex Community Foundation are pleased to announce that they are now looking for applications for the Provide Foundation. The application form is their standard form and can be found via their website here.

Provide is an Essex-based social enterprise owned by its staff members and delivers a broad range of community health services in the County and beyond. Their Fund, which we manage, is offering grants of up to £20,000 to support local charitable activities. In particular, the Provide Foundation is looking for local charities and organisations that help improve and increase access to community health services.

To be eligible for funding, applicants must demonstrate how they have adapted during the COVID-19 pandemic and how their work supports those who are vulnerable. 

Links to health and social care should include one of the following:  

  • To help keep people out of hospital   
  • To help people leave hospital more quickly   
  • To help people stay healthy in their community   
  • To improve health and wellbeing in the community

Please can we ask that you share this opportunity with your networks. More information about Provide and the services they provide can be found here.

We are more than happy to speak to groups about their work before they apply. Please encourage them to call us directly on 01245 356018, or alternatively book a general time slot here.
