Southend & Castlepoint and Rochford Clinical Commissioning Groups

Resilience Grant Programme 2014/45

NHS Southend and NHS Castle Point and Rochford Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) are inviting applications for resilience grants from their allocation of resilience funding. 

The resilience grants scheme has been developed to encourage and secure innovative service models that will assist the CCGs to deliver key priorities and interventions in its Operational Resilience and Capacity Plan 2014/15.

The scheme will provide organisations with short-term funding (up to 31/03/2015) to assist them to develop and implement services that support resilience and capacity of the health and social care system in South East Essex, with the following priorities:

  • improve the local preventative services
  • support efforts to keep people out of hospital and remain independent for as long as possible
  • enable community independence and recovery
  • develop integrated care

These may include services such as:

  • Responsive transport service to enable discharge from hospital during surge periods
  • Crisis and rapid response 
  • Community rehabilitation and re-ablement
  • Enhanced domiciliary care (eg. night time service)
  • Bed based rehabilitation 
  • Falls prevention

The above list is not exhaustive and all innovative projects that meet the agreed priorites will be considered.

Providers will need to demonstrate their ability to adapt, diversify and work with multi-disciplinary teams to enable effective service delivery and best outcomes for patients. Applications based on collaboration between providers are encouraged.
