This summer the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) and NHS England and Improvement (NHSEI) were seeking applications from voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector organisations for the next round of the Health and Wellbeing Fund.

The theme of the fund 2022 to 2025 is women’s reproductive wellbeing in the workplace. Linking in with the development of the new Women’s Health Strategy, this fund aims to support VCSE organisations who can provide a holistic support offer to assist women experiencing reproductive health issues, like menopause, fertility problems, miscarriage and pregnancy loss, menstrual health and gynaecological conditions, to remain in, and return to, the workplace.

The results are now in and the UK government has awarded £1.97M to 16 organizations:

  • Ashiana Community Project (Menopause)
  • Best Beginnings (Pregnancy)
  • Birmingham Voluntary Services Council, Salus Fatigue Foundation and Disability Resource Center (Hormonal Health)
  • Brook (Sexual Health and Wellbeing)
  • Endometriosis UK (Endometriosis)
  • Fertility Network UK (Fertility)
  • Here (Menopause)
  • Maternity Action (Pregnancy)
  • Mind (Reproductive Health)
  • Sands (Pregnancy Loss)
  • Suffolk Libraries (Menopause)
  • The Eve Appeal (Gynecological Health)
  • The Heeley Trust (Community Health)
  • Wellbeing of Women (Menopause)
  • The Women’s Organisation (Women’s Health Research)
  • Tommy’s (Pregnancy)
