Applications opening soon for 2018/19 grants from the CCGs’ Partnership Development Fund

The four Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) in Berkshire West set up the Partnership Development Fund as part of their commitment to working with the voluntary sector on local services for patients that align with the CCGs’ strategic and operational plans.

The 2018/19 Partnership Development Fund programme will be open for applications from Friday 1 September 2017 for six weeks.  The closing date for applications will be 5pm on Friday 13 October 2017. 

Successful applicants will be awarded grants of between £500 and £30,000 to fund schemes that complement the CCGs commissioning priorities and that can be delivered within the 2018/19 grant year.  All applicants will be notified early in January 2018 of the outcome of their application and projects will start on 1 April 2018.  The total allocation for 2018/19 is £325,000 (the same as for 2017/18).  Successful applicants will be offered a grant up to the full value of their request.

The application pack will be available on the websites of each of the four CCGs in Berkshire West from 1 September 2017 and via links on the websites of the three voluntary sector infrastructure organisations in Berkshire West: Volunteer Centre West Berkshire; Involve Community (Wokingham) and Reading Voluntary Action.  The pack will include the application form, information about the eligibility criteria and the application process and the key documents that  applicants should reference in their applications.
