  • Funding available to support children and young people’s mental wellbeing

    Created: 02/09/2021, Updated: 28/09/2021

    Third sector organisations can now apply to funding to support the mental wellbeing of children and young people aged 5-24 (>26 for care experienced young people). This funding is being made available under Fife's new model for the Community Mental Health and Wellbeing Supports and Services Framework. 

    Funding will be for two years and applicants should aim to:

    • develop the capacity to support children and young people’s mental wellbeing through a partnership with other locality groups; and
    • provide direct, targeted interventions and practices working with groups of children and young people with additional support needs to support mental wellbeing. It is anticipated that these targeted interventions and practices will take up the majority of the brief. 

    The vision for this framework is to offer equitable support and services across all seven localities of Fife. It aims to achieve this by taking a consistent approach to delivery with this brief with no more than one service provider for each locality. Organisations may apply for more than one locality. 

    The localities of Fife include: South-West Fife, Dunfermline, Cowdenbeath, Kirkcaldy, Glenrothes Levenmouth and North-East Fife.  

    Available funding should be considered as £50,000 for each locality budget (updated by Fife Council on 28 Septemberand includes all management, employment, administration and overhead costs and service delivery costs. 

    Key documents:


    Fife Council has recently had confirmation from the Scottish Government in regard to the 2022/2023 budget for the Community MHWB Framework which will allow it to review the funding brief. Therefore, Fife Council has extended the deadline for applications until midnight on Sunday 17 October.  Applications will be shortlisted by 27 October with a multi-agency panel being used to score bids. The bids with the highest scores will be invited to deliver a presentation to the panel on their bid and those successful will receive funding.
