Funding for Defibrillators

Active Derbyshire, Active Notts, Funding, News

Organisations across England are invited to bid for a share of £1 million of government funding to buy life-saving defibrillators for community spaces like town halls, local parks or post offices.

The DHSC Community Automated External Defibrillator (AED) fund will support provision of 2,000 AED’s. These will be distributed across England during 2023-2024, supporting any organisation based in England that is not eligible for the current Department of Education AED programme.

The funding for the scheme is based on a first come first served basis. The funding will be allocated on the following basis:

  1. 100 applications will be selected by DHSC to receive a fully funded AED – selection is based on areas that are most in need of AED throughout England. Applicants will be advised in mid-October and units shipped in mid-November.
  2. 1,900 applications will receive partial DHSC funding for an AED – organisations will be required to provide their own match funding of c.£750.

If you would like to progress your grant fund application immediately or start raising funding, then please email hello@defibgrant.co.uk.

The closing date is 21st September 2024 or once the funding has been allocated.
