Justin Madders, MP for Ellesmere Port and Neston, is urging local community groups and charities to apply to receive grants of between £500 and £20,000 raised by players of People’s Postcode Lottery.

Up until 28th February 2018, charities are being urged to submit an expression of interest in the funding, which requires basic details about the organisation, as well as a very short description of the project they are proposing.

Justin said:

“This is an opportunity not to be missed.

“I know that there are many charities already doing fantastic work across the constituency, but I have no doubt that this additional funding would be most welcomed.  A successful application could help your group deliver an extra special project or expand the existing service.

“I encourage as many local charities as possible to apply before the 28th February deadline.

“The funding is made available through three different charitable trusts depending on the type of project; for more information on how to apply for funding, please visit the Trusts’ websites:

  • People’s Postcode Trust postcodetrust.org.uk seeks applications for projects that focus on the prevention of poverty, promotion of human rights and equal rights.
  • Postcode Local Trust postcodelocaltrust.org.uk supports community gardens, play areas, wildlife and green energy projects.
  • Postcode Community Trust postcodecommunitytrust.org.uk focuses on grass-roots sports, arts, recreation and healthy living programmes.”

Justin Madders, MP for Ellesmere Port and Neston, is calling for nominees to enter into a special awards programme being organised to mark the 70th birthday of the NHS.

The NHS70 Parliamentary Awards were launched in Parliament and are part of a range of activities to celebrate the achievements of the NHS and those who work for and with it.

MPs in England are searching for outstanding nominees who have innovated, impressed and made a real difference to how the health and care system provides care for patients. There are ten categories, including a Lifetime Achievement award to honour those who have devoted their lives or careers to making the NHS better, both for patients and those who work within it.

Justin said:

“The NHS is one of the nation’s most loved institutions, and it is right that we take the opportunity of its 70th birthday to recognise and thank the extraordinary people – the everyday ‘health and care heroes’ – who are there to guide, support and care for us, day in, day out.

“I know that there are many examples of excellent care and practice benefiting local people, and I would urge those working with and for health and care organisations in Ellesmere Port and Neston to send me details of people they think deserve national recognition.

“My nominations must be submitted by the 23rd March, so please don’t delay in sending your suggestions to me. Further information on the Parliamentary Awards, including how to nominate and the criteria for each category, is available at www.nhs70awards.co.uk.”

Justin is asking for nominations in the following categories:

• The Excellence in Cancer Care Award
• The Excellence in Mental Health Care Award
• The Excellence in Urgent and Emergency Care Award
• The Excellence in Primary Care Award
• The Person-Centred Care Champion Award
• The Future NHS Award
• The Healthier Communities Award
• The Care and Compassion Award
• The Patient and Public Involvement Award
• The Lifetime Achievement Award

The campaign wants to encourage people to address their hearing loss by highlighting three simple steps: take an initial check on Action on Hearing Loss’ website, to see your GP, and lastly to get help with your hearing.

Justin said:

“It’s been great to find out more about Action on Hearing Loss’ work supporting people with deafness, tinnitus and hearing loss and to find out just how easy it is to get your hearing screened.

“With 11 million in people in the UK living with hearing loss, a number rising as the population ages, it’s more important than ever that people understand the importance of their hearing health.

“I’d encourage all of my constituents who suspect that they are losing their hearing to follow Action on Hearing Loss’ simple three steps to get their hearing checked.
