Endometriosis UK to receive funding to develop support services

Thursday, July 31, 2014

Endometriosis UK is to get up to £188,000 over three years to develop new, innovative approaches to health and care, actively share excellent practice or improve integrated care and efficiency.

Voluntary sector organisations submitted funding bids to the Department of Health setting out how they could help meet the Departments objectives of better health and well-being and better care for all and how their proposal has potential for national impact.

Minister for Care and Support Norman Lamb said: “These projects play a crucial role in supporting people, their families and carers. They are examples of just some of the excellent and innovative work going on throughout the country in the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector – all of which help to create and support strong and resilient communities.”

This grant will allow Endometriosis UK to continue our work to develop volunteer support and our services throughout specific regions of the UK. It will help us to further build and strengthen links with specialist treatment centres for women with endometriosis and ensure that our local services link to these in order to ensure a continuity of care for patients. The project will build upon our successful pilot in the South East of England, while extending our work to two further areas.
