The Association of Mental Health Providers is pleased to announce the launch of the second round of its Mental Health Sustainability Fund.
The fund will provide grants of up to £5,000 to support the sustainability of mental health Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) provider organisations, with a turnover of £0-£250,000.
VCSE mental health organisations have a vital role to play in local communities, providing support to anyone who has a mental health need. However, they continue to face many challenges in delivering services, due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The Association of Mental Health Providers recognises that it's vital that service providers working in the community are supported, to enable them to continue delivering essential, life-saving services.
As such, the association is looking at funding costs that can positively impact the sustainability of an organisation – specifically those that are supporting the mental health and wellbeing of communities disproportionately impacted by Covid-19; with a focus on organisations that are led by and/or are supporting Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities. The association will also be considering applications from organisations supporting other disadvantaged groups, such as the homeless community, those in contact with the criminal justice system, children and young people, women and girls, victims of domestic violence etc.
You can find out more about the fund and eligibility criteria here.
The deadline for applications for this round is 12pm on Friday 13 August 2021. Please fill in the online application form here.
