Enrych Awarded Share of £490,000 NHS Charities Grant

Enrych has been selected to deliver one of seven community projects in Leicester and have been awarded a share of £490,000 thanks to a Community Partnership Grant from NHS Charities Together.

Delivered through a partnership between the three local NHS Charities, Leicester Hospitals Charity, Raising Health (Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust) and East Midlands Ambulance Charitable Fund, the grants were made to support communities affected by the highest levels of deprivation and greatest health inequalities.

Leicester Hospitals Charity Director, Lisa Davies, says the group of the three local NHS charities are proud to support these important local projects through these grant awards.

“The pandemic has impacted all of us, but people in our community who are vulnerable and the community charities who support them have been hit particularly hard,” says Lisa.

“Through this funding from NHS Charities Together, we are delighted to lend a helping hand to these seven important projects as they support people in our communities. As we emerge from the pandemic over the coming years, we are proud that these grants will help our communities to recover.

“For us at Leicester Hospitals Charity and our partners at Raising Health and East Midlands Ambulance Charitable Fund, we all see this moment in time as an important opportunity to create a positive legacy from Covid. Nothing can undo the difficulties and hurt the pandemic has caused, but we are all determined to help make our health services even better for those who need them most.”

Bev Cowley, Head of Community Development at Enrych said “We are so excited about our new project which has been named ‘CasCaid,’ Bev added “This project will enable Enrych to work with a partner network to introduce a range of activities and support initiatives to reach even more adults living with a disability, poor mental health, in particular those who are more socially isolated. All activities will focus on improving wellbeing and provide support to enable them to stay active, maintain good health and wellbeing and reduce their need for medical interventions. We are looking forward to working with the social prescribing teams across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland and alongside North West Leicestershire District Council to improve health and wellbeing in our local community following their strategy”.

Over 40 local charities and projects applied to receive a grant, with just seven recipients chosen for their focus on supporting vulnerable and marginalised people in our communities.
