Healthier Futures Action Fund - Apply Now


A new Healthier Futures Action Fund from the Greener NHS is now open for applications.

The fund aims to support individuals and teams within NHS organisations to kick-start innovative initiatives or ideas that will improve health and patient care, reduce inequalities, and deliver value, while supporting a more sustainable health service.

The fund is now open to individuals and teams within the NHS, clinical and non-clinical, for bids with a suggested range of between £3,000-£15,000. Small steps add up. Find out more and apply for the Healthier Futures Action Fund today, to kick-start your sustainable healthcare initiative for better health now and for future generations.
