Prevention and early intervention will help to reduce demand on our already strained NHS commissioned services.

Grants of up to £20,000 per year for up to 2 years are available.
While the maximum grant award is £20,000 per year, the fund anticipates that the average grant will be between £5,000-10,000 per year.

Monitoring and Evaluation

At an appropriate time after the grant has been paid, we will ask you to submit an end of grant monitoring report form. They may also ask your group for an interim monitoring report if your project lasts longer than a year. These simple forms ask for details of how the grant has been spent and what has been achieved. In addition, City Funds has developed a bespoke impact monitoring tool that will give the people who benefit from your project information about their own wellbeing and help us to understand how your project has helped them. A member of staff may also contact you to arrange a visit to your project.
