Grants worth £40,000 is being made available to small to medium-sized charities from healthcare provider, Simplyhealth.

The healthcare provider has announced it will offer a number of grants, worth a total of £40,000 through the digital platform whatCharity.com as part of its charitable activity budget.

whatCharity.com will provide a simple and quick application template for grant seekers and match the grant giver with charities.

Charities that already have a profile with the platform will be asked to fill out a short supplementary questionnaire. Any new charities, providing they are registered, can apply for a profile, which requires Charity Commission data, charity project and impact data and testimonials.

“We want to work with charity partners that are clearly aligned with our products and services and can help people who are less able to access these services, thus removing barriers to healthcare for disadvantaged groups," Simplyheath head of community impact, Sarah Greenaway said.

"We want to work with charities who can clearly demonstrate the difference they make through good impact reporting and a clear project proposal," she added.

“In addition to the grants we are offering through whatCharity, we will consider further contributions from charities in this process if we receive innovative proposals that really bring our goal of ‘improving access to healthcare’ to life.

"This is a great opportunity to use a new and efficient distribution model to match Simplyhealth with grant seekers nationwide.”

The bid process starts on 19th September with the winners will be announced in November, full details of how charities can make their submissions can be found on the website.
