Year Two of the Fife Communities Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund is now OPEN for applications
We're delighted to announce that Year Two of the Fife Communities Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund is now OPEN for applications.
Just over £1m is available this financial year to fund projects that aim to improve the mental health and wellbeing of adults (16+) living in Fife.
Year 2 funding is open to all third sector organisations in Fife. We encourage Year 1 applicants to apply, but applicants are not guaranteed funding in Year 2. We currently do not anticipate having funds for a third year.
Who can apply
This Fund will support projects and activities which promote the improvement of mental health and wellbeing at a small-scale, grassroots community level within Fife. The Fund can support new projects and activities, and the expansion of existing activities; it is intended to provide additional rather than replacement funding, and should not be used to fill shortfalls in budgets. You do not have to be a mental health and wellbeing organisation to apply but your application does have to clearly benefit the mental health and wellbeing of people in your community. We will accept bids from partnerships, though the lead partner must be a third sector organisation and must be delivering the majority of the activity.
How to apply
For more information, and to access the funding guidance and apply, please visit www.fva.org/mhgrant.
When to apply
The closing date for Year 2 applications is 07 November 2022. Please note- that unlike in Year 1, which had 2 rounds of funding- Year 2 will have only 1 round.
