“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.”
