Health care projects have been invited to pitch to their clinical commissioning group (CCG) for the chance to share £50,000 of funding. 
The ‘Dragon’s Den’ style panel from Darlington CCG aims to find the most innovative ideas from voluntary groups and organisations in the area. 
However, the projects must be linked to the CCG’s strategic objectives. Each project can bid for funding between £2,500 and £25,000.

Andrea Jones, chair of Darlington CCG said: “There are many fantastic and imaginative voluntary and community organisations in Darlington and this is a wonderful opportunity for us as a CCG to find out more about the difference they make to the lives of local people.
“It’s also a good opportunity for those groups to find out more about our CCG and the commissioning process and our role in planning and buying health services for our population.”
