Acupuncture in Action Grants

World medicine would like to invite either individual or groups of acupuncturists to apply for one of our PROJECT grants. Each grant is worth up to £2000 and is available to support EITHER the implementation of a new project OR to support the maintenance/expansion of an established project which offers acupuncture to areas of the community with a specific need.

In line with our ethos, the project must be non profit making and demonstrate a clear purpose in improving the health of people in your community who are compromised by poverty, social disadvantage, conflict or trauma.

Examples of ongoing projects are the JRS UK Wapping Project, or 'Refugee Friends' and Suzanne Reid's Ukrainian projects in Fulham and Holland Park, all in London.

It is very much our hope that there are other acupuncturists throughout the UK who are thinking about starting similar projects in their communities, who have identified a need and who perhaps need a little support to launch. If so, we would love to hear from you.

To enquire about an ACUPUNCTURE in ACTION grant, please send an email to with a BRIEF outline of your project idea. We will then invite you to submit a formal application for a grant in line with the terms and conditions.
