Prevention and Promotion Fund for Better Mental Health

Prevention and Promotion Fund for Better Mental Health

Public Health’s funding opportunity seeks to invest in prevention and promotion interventions for better mental health, specifically to mitigate mental health impacts arising from the COVID-19 pandemic and reduce widening mental health inequalities by targeting at risk and vulnerable groups.

Sandwell MBC Public Health are inviting Voluntary and Community Sector organisations to submit an Expression of Interest against three allocated strands, to receive funding which will be distributed in the form of a grant. Each strand has a value of £40,000, the allocated lots are:

a. Engaging men through outreach peer support for self-harm and suicide prevention
b. Engaging men through football and peer support
c. Engaging Minority Ethnic Communities through targeted peer support and activities

The Expression of Interest window is open from 04/08/2021 until 12pm on 20/08/2021. Successful EOI notifications are expected by 31/08/2021.

Projects will be expected to start delivery quickly, with the mobilisation and promotion period being September 2021, and the delivery period starting at the beginning of October 2021 at the latest. The provisional delivery period is until May 2022.
