Third sector organisations can access funding to reconnect communities and support adults' (16+) mental health and wellbeing.
This is the first year of a two-year Fund to support mental health and wellbeing in communities across Scotland. The monies are part of the Scottish Government’s new Communities Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund.
Fife Voluntary Action (FVA) is managing this Fund in partnership with Fife Council and Fife Health & Social Care Partnership, and is responsible for distributing just over £1m across Fife in year one.
Grants of £1,000 - max £50,000 are available for organisations to develop projects or activities that support or promote adults' (16+) mental health and wellbeing. You don't need to be a mental health organisation, but your proposal must evidence a contribution to the mental health and wellbeing of adults.
Round 1 of this fund opened on 15 November and will close on 01 December 2021. Round two will open on 02 December and will close on 19 January 2022.
