Suicide Prevention Fund 2021 to 2022

The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) has made available £4 million for a grant fund to support suicide prevention VCSE organisations across 2021 to 2022.

 

This grant fund will support services to help meet increased demand resulting from the pandemic, and will particularly focus on organisations supporting individuals from some of the groups at higher-risk of suicide. There is also a ring-fenced proportion of the grant fund to specifically help support small community-led groups and organisations up and down the country, who play a vital role in responding to local needs.

 

The application portal for the grant fund will open on Thursday 2nd December 2021, and close on Thursday 6th January 2022. Further information and guidance on the fund can be found at: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/suicide-prevention-fund-2021-to-2022

 

The fund is being administered by PwC (on behalf of DHSC), following an open tender. PwC will be holding a webinar to provide further information about applying for the fund (likely to be week commencing 6th December) and will also host a helpline for those that may need further guidance with an application. This helpline will be open throughout the entirety of the application window. Further information about this, along with the process, will be available both through the application portal and on gov.uk.
