Last week saw the launch of the Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) Health and Wellbeing Fund with the aim to support VCSE organisations who can provide a holistic support offer to assist women experiencing reproductive health issues in the workplace. The Fund is managed by Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) and NHS England and NHS Improvement (NHS EI). This fund has been developed by the VCSE Health and Wellbeing Programme with the assistance of the joint DHSC/Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) Work and Health Unit.

Funding of between £200,000 to £600,000 per applicant is available over a period of three financial years to expand or develop projects or programmes in areas outlined in the information pack. Applications with a commitment secured for additional funding will be prioritised but all applications will be considered.

The closing date for applications is 9:00 Friday 5 August.  Further information can be found here VCSE Health and Wellbeing Fund 2022 to 2025: women’s reproductive wellbeing in the workplace – GOV.UK (
