Social Seeding project awards grants to improve health of marginalised groups

19th January 2016

NHS West Leicestershire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has awarded over £220,000 in grants to voluntary groups who work with the most vulnerable groups in society, supporting them to access health care and support.

This is the first round of funding from the CCG’s innovative “Social Seeding” project, a £360,000 scheme run in partnership with Voluntary Action LeicesterShire, which aims to target those groups who can be marginalised from mainstream society and may struggle to access health care. The grants have been awarded to projects starting in 2016.
