We are offering funding from South West London NHS to local organisations and groups to run an activity or event, enjoyable to their local community that we can attend and speak to people about their experiences of using local health and care services.
The NHS in south west London is putting together a plan of how to improve services over the next five years. They are funding this programme so they can attend the events or activities to talk to people that they don’t normally hear from to hear their experiences and discuss some ideas as to how things could be improved.
What’s being offered?
Funding is available to local organisations and groups to run an activity or event for this purpose. This fund for the borough of Croydon is provided by South West London NHS and administered by Healthwatch Croydon.
A maximum of £750 per event is available.
Example events include tea dances; pottery classes; pizza and movie afternoons, cultural activities etc, see below for previous activities from the first round.
Colleagues from the NHS will attend these events/activities and spend part of the time talking to local people about their experience of using local health and care services.
