The Communities Mental Health & Wellbeing Fund is now open
Community, voluntary, and third sector organisations in Aberdeenshire can apply for up to £50,000 to deliver initiatives that promote mental health and wellbeing. Applications are welcomed from small to medium-sized groups and organisations – with incomes ranging from under £25,000 per annum up to £1 million per annum.
This Scottish Government Fund has been established in response to the mental health need arising from the pandemic - to provide grants to small, grassroots community groups and organisations to develop a culture of mental wellbeing and prevention within local communities and across Scotland with improved awareness of how we can all stay well and help ourselves and others. The Fund will be distributed by Aberdeenshire Voluntary Action who will act as lead partners to community groups and organisations within Aberdeenshire.
Applications will be accepted in two phases:
Phase 1: 17th November - 7th December 2021
Phase 2: 5th January - 15th March 2022*
*or until all money has been allocated, whichever is sooner.
