Legal & General’s new £3million ‘Health Equity’ grant Fund, alongside the UCL Institute of Health Equity (IHE).

What is available?

The Fund aims to support community-based initiatives across the UK which are addressing the social determinants of health.

The Fund has potential to support up to 150 projects tackling non-medical social and economic factors which have an influence on local and national public health, such as housing, education, infrastructure, or quality of work.

  • The Legal & General ‘Health Equity’ Fund is a £3 million fund offering grants of up to £75,000 to place based projects that address the social determinants of health.
  • The fund will initially launch with a trailblazer £1mn available to projects based in the North East of England ahead of a UK-wide launch in the summer of 2024.
  • Example projects that the Fund may support could range from funding for inner-city schools in areas of deprivation to community programmes which address the social determinants behind pressures on A&E services, or partnerships raising awareness of the contribution the natural environment makes to health and wellbeing.
