DHSSPS Health and Social Care Revenue Grant Scheme

The Minister for Health, Simon Hamilton has announced the phased closure of the Department’s existing ‘Core Grant’ scheme which will come to an end in March 2018. 

With the core grant scheme being wound down, a new innovation scheme will be put in its place.  The Minister is committed to the concept of co-design of the new funding scheme that involves the Department as the funder and the community and voluntary sector as the grant fund recipients. A Design Team will be established by DHSSPS to develop the scheme. 

NICVA will work closely with the Department and assist with secretariat support to the Design Team and will keep the sector up to date with the process.
