Bursary scheme to support service user and carer involvement in HSC

The Public Health Agency (PHA) has engaged with service user and carer representatives to set up a bursary scheme to support service users and carers involved in strategic programmes of work with Health and Social Care (HSC).  The scheme aims to help develop your knowledge and skills for participation in Involvement work.

The bursary scheme is open to service users and carers who are based in Northern Ireland and engaged with a Health and Social Care organisation.  A total of £2,500 has been allocated to the bursary.  The maximum amount per participant is £750 with only one application per individual per financial year (April 2019 – March 2020).

The bursary scheme is now open for new applications.
