Legal & General and UCL Institute of Health Equity launch new fund to support up to 150 communities across the UK

Posted on behalf of Legal and General, and the Institute of Health Equity:

This £3m fund will award grants to support place-based projects from local authorities, charities, businesses, and community groups across UK regions and nations.

Since 2021, Legal & General and the Institute of Health Equity have worked together to explore the role of business in reducing health inequalities in the UK.

Based on learnings from our partnership, we are pleased to share that Legal & General are launching a £3 million fund offering grants to place-based projects that address the social determinants of health.

The Fund is the latest outcome of Legal & General’s long history of using our role as a business and investor to positively influence health outcomes, recognising that a stable economy and healthy society go hand in hand and businesses and investors can actively help to support both.

More information on when this fund will open for applications will be available soon.
