NHS England has launched the Realising the Value Programme, a new initiative which will empower people and communities to take more control of their health.
Through this initiative, NHS England will award a grant of up to £500,000 to a charity or not for profit organisation (or consortium) to identify evidence-based approaches to self-care. This programme will also support the commissioning and spread of such approaches, across local communities, and in the NHS, to empower people to take an active role in their health and care.
Interested organisations have until 9 January 2015 to apply for money from the Realising the Value programme. NHS England will be hosting an event on 8 December, in London, where organsations can come and find out more about the programme and submitting an application.
