Speech bubble saying

Our #SpeakUp small grants scheme awards funding to local community, voluntary, or not-for-profit groups, enabling them to engage with their communities about what matters to them. 

Recommendations from the report:

  • To address low levels of understanding about health services and how to access support, we would like to run a workshop around ‘Knowing your Healthcare Services.’
  • Provide information to local communities, especially to people who are vulnerable and isolated about the changes to urgent care services.
  • Enable local people to meet with health service providers, especially mental health services, to allow them to gain answers to their questions and concerns about services.
