    [post_content] => The Society of Homeopaths has awarded its first three grants to help local groups establish clinics offering discounted homeopathy to patients from disadvantaged backgrounds.

The recipients are:
  • the Homeopathy Community Clinic at the Tara Centre in Lancaster which works with the refugee and asylum-seeking community
  • Homeopathy in the Sussex Community (HISC) which is allied to a refuge-based organisation for survivors of domestic violence
  • Maintaining Health Partners in South London which offers support to people affected by mental illness
The grant fund was established to extend the reach of homeopathy across all communities, to encourage collaboration with a wide range of organisations and build homeopathy ‘hubs’ while offering newly-qualified RSHoms potential pathways into practice. Hilary Fairclough, the Society's Vice-Chair, said it was an initiative that the Society had been hoping to do for some time. “For us, this provides a valuable opportunity to offer homeopathy to marginalised groups in partnership with local agencies," she said. "It will also give young, newly-qualified RSHoms a step-up by gaining experience and working with an established RSHom." Funding is available for further grant applications until April 30 and the Society is open to applications from members who have experience in this field or who are interested in starting a clinic from scratch, Hilary added. Applications should include a full breakdown of funding where possible, a 500-word supporting statement outlining the key aspects of the application and a short statement of support from the proposed partner organisation.
