£600,000 total funding available from the Health Foundation and NHSE&I, with up to £30,000 for each project
Have you got a great idea that you’d like to get £30,000 of funding for?
Q Exchange is Q’s £600,000 funding programme. Funded by the Health Foundation and NHS England and NHS Improvement, it offers Q members the chance to develop project ideas and submit bids for up to £30,000 of funding.
Applicants will had the opportunity to refine and develop their ideas with the help of the Q community through a collaborative online process.
This year we sought project ideas on the theme ‘Embedding positive changes emerging through new collaborations or partnerships during COVID-19.’
In response to the exceptional circumstances the health and care system is facing, we reassessed how Q Exchange could best support the Q community and the system at this time. We have therefore taken the decision to award funding to all 30 of the shortlisted Q Exchange 2020 projects.
30 teams with collaboratively developed ideas, shortlisted for the Q community online vote
Q community members will vote online to decide which projects will receive funding
