Bupa UK Foundation

Nurturing ideas to improve health and wellbeing

Our purpose

The Bupa UK Foundation's purpose is to help people live longer, healthier, happier lives. We fund practical projects to tackle challenges in health and social care and make a direct impact on people's health and wellbeing.

Our programmes

Our funding programmes focus on factors that underpin good health and are developed around themes such as mental health, ageing well, preventing long-term conditions, healthy living and behaviour change to improve health and wellbeing. 

Since 2015 the Bupa UK Foundation has awarded more than £2.2 million in grants to improve mental health, support carers and empower young adults living with ongoing health challenges to live life to the full. 

Please note: Our Mid-life Mental Health funding programme closed on Friday 31 May 2019. If you applied for funding, we will let you know whether your application has been progressed to Stage 2 by Friday 19 July 2019.
