Our Minds Matter Short-Term Community Grants
The Fife Community Mental Health and Wellbeing Strategic Oversight Group invite eligible groups to apply for this short-term funding opportunity to deliver outcomes for young people aged 5-24 (up to 26 if care experienced) and their parents or carers.
This funding is available as a one-off for 2023, from the Scottish Government's Community Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund for young people and their parents or carers. In Fife, this forms part of the overall Our Minds Matter framework.
Who can apply
You must be a constituted third sector organisation or Community Council (unconstituted groups can contact FVA for free support to consider how best to become constituted and apply for the grant). Organisations must have a child protection/safeguarding policy and their staff and volunteers should be members of the PVG scheme. Partnership bids are welcome, but they must be led by, and most of the activity undertaken by, a third sector organisation.
