Funding opportunity Bromley Council and NHS SE-London ICB Innovation Fund (Applications open from 29 January 2024 and close on 25 February 2024 at 23:59)

Bromley Council are pleased to announce the opening of another round of the Innovation Fund focusing on innovation to deliver improved health and wellbeing outcomes including day activities.

Social isolation can affect many elderly people and many residents need support with interesting and meaningful activities.

Partners already deliver a number of programmes and therefore we are seeking innovative, and creative new projects that have not been tried or tested previously in this borough. Premises to deliver activities can be made available, and are located in Beckenham and Shortlands.    

Are you a voluntary, community group or organisation who can help deliver these aims? 

  • Helping people to improve their health and wellbeing. 
  • Reducing social isolation and loneliness.
  • Providing day opportunities for vulnerable adults and older people.
  • Day opportunities to support the role of carers. 
  • Supporting young people (16+) as they transition into adulthood.
  • Promoting and supporting volunteering.

The Innovation Fund is financed by Bromley Council and NHS SE-London ICB, and we are looking for innovative, and creative new projects. The proposed timeline is as follows:
