£244k is available for Inverclyde mental health organisations and groups
As part of the Recovery and Renewal Fund, the Minister for Mental Wellbeing and Social Care announced a new Communities Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund for adults (aged 16 and over) with £15 million being made available in 2021- 22. This is the first of a two-year programme to support mental health and well-being in communities across Scotland and reflects the importance placed on community support as part of the overall mental health infrastructure. The Inverclyde Communities Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund (ICMHWF) will be managed by CVS Inverclyde and distribute £244,609.99 to community groups and organisations in Inverclyde for 2021-22. A second-year allocation will be notified once the Scottish Government Budget is approved.
This fund will open for applications on Tuesday 23rd November 2021 when full details on how to apply, including funding guidance and application form, will be available on this page. The initial deadline for applications is 10 am on Tuesday 14th December 2021.
