NEW MENTAL HEALTH WELLBEING FUND – CLOSED
The Scottish Government’s Communities Mental Health & Wellbeing Fund has been established with £15 million allocated to support mental health and wellbeing in communities across Scotland. The fund will be distributed by Third Sector Interfaces (TSI) in communities across Scotland. The fund aims to support adult community-based initiatives to help address the impact of distress and mental ill health caused by social isolation and loneliness, as well as addressing the mental health inequalities exacerbated by the Covid-19 pandemic. The fund aims to take a preventative approach and allow communities to develop their own solutions, including developing stronger partnerships.
Locally, the fund will be distributed by Clackmannanshire Third Sector Interface (CTSI) and Stirlingshire Voluntary Enterprise (SVE) in conjunction with the local Integration Joint Board (IJB) and other key representatives from the respective councils and community as part of a steering group. In addition, CTSI and SVE will also be allocating the Ideas, Innovation & Improvement(III) Fund. This fund is to support the development of third sector projects that are a ‘test of change’ which build capacity in communities in order to encourage health and wellbeing in Stirling and Clackmannanshire.
CLOSING DATE: 22nd November 2021

Please note: Funding must be spent by end March 2022.
