The aim of the CHCP Foundation small grants programme is to provide an opportunity for local voluntary and community organisations and/or other not-for-profit organisations to contribute towards the health and wellbeing of people throughout the United Kingdom.
The programme provides grants or donations of up to £1,000 maximum to carry out activities, projects or one-off events requiring an element of sponsorship.
The next deadline for CHCP Foundation small grant applications is 1 July 2016.
