Building The Community-Pharmacy Partnership

The Community Development and Health Network (CDHN) has opened its latest round of funding for Building the Community-Pharmacy Partnership (BCPP).

BCPP is about local communities and pharmacists working in partnership to identify and tackle local health needs using a community development approach, with a focus on addressing health inequalities.

BCPP can offer support in developing your partnership, ideas and project.

  • Level 1 This funding is for those interested in developing a local community-pharmacy partnership that will explore some locally identified issues with a group. You may have already established a working relationship with your pharmacist and/or community but this funding can also help you establish a local partnership and develop a small project to begin to address local issues. Grants of up to £2,000 will be awarded for projects that can last for a maximum of 9 months.
  • Level 2 This funding is for those who have planned to work in partnership on a project that will address a range of issues. There will be clear aims and objectives and a plan of work that will respond to locally identified needs and the needs of the target group. This community–pharmacy partnership will be core to the planning, delivery and evaluation of the project. This partnership will also seek to connect with other relevant organisations. Grants of up to £10,000 will be awarded for projects that can last for a maximum of 2 years. You do not have to complete a level 1 before applying for a level 2 project. Applications are made jointly by the pharmacy and community/voluntary partners.
