Health Inequalities Fund Launch for Basildon and Brentwood
We are pleased to announce Brentwood CVS and Basildon, Billericay and Wickford CVS have
partnered with The Mid and South Essex Integrated Care Partnership to offer an exciting
funding opportunity for local voluntary and community groups to support projects that take an
innovative and collaborative approach to reducing health inequalities and the unwarranted
variation that exists in Brentwood and Basildon boroughs.
The Health Inequalities Fund 2023-24 aims to improve population health and health care,
tackling inequalities in outcomes and helping NHS to support broader social and economic
development in line with the Core20PLUS5 approach.
Funding will be available to non-profit voluntary and community organisations based in
Brentwood and Basildon for projects that address the underlying causes of health inequality
at a local level. There is no limit to the amount of funding applied for and the projects should
be completed by end of March 2024. They should target and reach out proactively to the most
deprived communities and develop solutions that are population focussed – breaking down
barriers between statutory and non-statutory organisations and the residents they serve.
A joint statement from both Brentwood and Basildon CVS CEOs – “This is a wonderful
