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 organisations continue to provide mental health services – or provide additional support – organisations can apply for a Coronavirus Mental Health Response Fund (CMHRF) grant. £5m support from the Department of Health and Social Care has been made available - grants of £20,000 or £50,000 are available for projects lasting up to 12 months.
Applications are accepted at any time and will be assessed every two weeks - applicants will be informed of the outcome within a month of applying.
