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 key 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 £1.6 million in grants to improve mental health, support carers and empower young adults living with ongoing health challenges to live life to the full. 

Caring for Carers 2018

Our current funding programme focuses on supporting and improving the health and wellbeing of older carers.  This funding programme is now closed for applications.  Details of grants awarded will be announced in late December 2018.
