Voluntary and community sector (VCS) mental health organisations have a vital role working in the community providing support to anyone who has a mental health need.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, demand for mental health services is increasing.
To help VCS organisations based in England continue to provide mental health services – or provide additional support – organisations can apply for a Coronavirus Mental Health Response Fund (CMHRF) grant, from the Association of Mental Health Providers (AMHP).
Thanks to £5m support from government (the Department of Health and Social Care), grants of £20,000 or £50,000 are available for projects lasting up to 12 months.
Get the details and apply via the AMHP website.
Support for smaller organisations or groups
As part of this funding programme, the National Survivor User Network (NSUN) will be administering a fund to support user-led organisations and smaller, unconstituted community organisations, who might not otherwise be eligible for a grant. For further details of this visit the NSUN website.
