#SpeakUp small grants 2017-18 - Summary Report

2017-18 was the first year of our #SpeakUp small grants scheme. We awarded funding to 11 local groups, enabling them to work with their communities to talk about health and social care services. Here we summarise the findings of these reports.

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. 

In total organisations gathered the views of around 540 people.

They have heard from a very diverse range of people, including:

  • Asylum seekers and refugees
  • People with lived experience of mental health distress
  • People with learning disabilities
  • People with physical disabilities including amputees and wheelchair users
  • Young people
  • Young men from Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic and Refugee (BAMER) communities
  • Women from BAMER communities
  • Members of the Chinese community
