Applications open until 13 August

Association of Mental Health Providers has just announced the launch of the second round of a small grants fund. This fund will be used to provide grants of up to £5,000 to support the sustainability of mental health voluntary, community and social enterprise provider organisations, with a turnover of £0-250k.

VCSE mental health organisations have a vital role working in the community providing support to anyone who has a mental health need but continues to face many challenges in delivering services during COVID-19, intensified by the lockdowns and varying tier systems. It is vital that service providers working in the community are supported to enable them to continue delivering essential, life-saving services to people who need it most so it can be effective and sustainable during and after the pandemic.

They are 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, Minority Ethnic communities. They 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 read more here and also sign up to their webinar on Wednesday 28 July at 1pm which is an opportunity to meet members of the Programme team and ask any questions that are not covered by their FAQ document.

Otherwise, organisations will need to complete the online application form by midday on Friday 13 August 2021
