In line with Sandwell Council’s ‘Stronger Sandwell’ approach to improving health and wellbeing, and in order to complement existing mental health provision and targeted interventions, this grant programme focuses specifically on the area of promoting positive community mental health, with funding being available to support early help/preventative activities that are run BY local people FOR local people.
This programme provides both funding to resource activities and in-kind support (e.g. guidance, training, information, etc.) to build the capacity of the organisation and its staff around positive mental health.
If your group or organisation is interested in applying for the VS2030 Community Mental Health grant, or would like a conversation to find out more, please email SCVO Community Partnerships Coach, Liz Webster at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The closing date for applications is mid-day on Monday, 28th February 2022.
