Apply for the Oral Health Community Challenge Fund - now closed

Information for third sector organisations on how to apply for funding to run oral health projects in deprived areas.


The Oral Health Community Challenge Fund is a £2.5 million grant scheme to help improve the oral health of people living in areas of multiple deprivation.

Third sector organisations can apply for grants between £7,000 and £30,000 a year to set up or expand projects that meet one or more of the following outcomes:

  • improve infant oral health
  • reduce oral health inequalities amongst people most at risk
  • increase opportunities for people to improve oral health and wellbeing

Funded activities should take place between 1 July 2019 and 31 March 2022.

We expect to award 25 to 30 grants, and you should find out if you're going to get funding at the end of May or beginning of June 2019.

This fund is now closed for applications. See the list of recipients.
