The Common Ambition programme will support up to five ambitious teams across the UK to work towards a shared aim: to build sustainable change across health care through collaboration between those who use services and those who deliver them.
The programme is a major commitment to supporting people, families, health care professionals and researchers to work together to improve health care services. We will support partnerships that can facilitate this type of collaboration by harnessing skills and knowledge from the community and the health system.
Successful partnerships will receive funding of between £300,000 and £500,000 for two to three years.
Funding is available to collaborations between providers of NHS services and voluntary or community sector organisations, such as charities or social enterprises. We also expect partnerships to be able to capture learning, measure impact and create links with local systems. Working with organisations such as universities, clinical commissioning groups, academic health science networks and local authorities could, therefore, strengthen the partnerships.
