NHS Blood and Transplant are calling for funding applications to help organisations promote deceased organ donation among black, Asian, mixed race and minority ethnic communities.

They are looking for applications that will deliver projects to reach black, Asian, mixed race and minority ethnic communities and/or engage people around their faith/beliefs. Trusted organisations with a footprint in those communities can be very effective at doing this due to their specialist knowledge, understanding and standing in the community.

Organisations applying for funds can apply for one of two options; funds up to £2,499 or between £2,500 and £10,000.

Funding is available for projects in England or Wales.

Bidders can apply for projects for delivery across one of the following three timescales:

  • projects up to the end of June 2020
  • projects up to the end of October 2020
  • projects up to the end of March 2021

Deadline for applications is 5pm on Monday 1 September 2019.

To support bidders with their applications, NHS Blood and Transplant will be holding a free workshop on Wednesday 7 August from 10am (10,30am start) -2pm at the Holiday Inn Bloomsbury, Coram Street, London, WC1N 1HT. To reserve a place, please email community.funding@nhsbt.nhs.uk
