What is the CamDocUK Small Grants Scheme?
CamDocUK is a charity which brings together Cameroonian Doctors living in the UK to improve the health of Cameroonians in the UK and in Cameroon. We raise money mainly from donations and fundraising activities to support projects that have an impact on the health of Cameroonians.
The grant gives a chance to apply for a grant of between £500 and £1000 for projects that aim to improve the health of local Cameroonian communities in the UK and in Cameroon.
You can apply for the grant if you are an individual, not for profit / voluntary or community group, social enterprise or statutory body in the UK or in Cameroon.
We will fund a range of projects which bring local people together to improve and promote health of Cameroonians.
Before you submit your application to us, please visit our website at www.camdocuk.org to see the work we do and projects we have already supported.
