A grant scheme has been launched in Brentwood to help improve mental health and wellbeing within the local community.

Brentwood’s Mental Health and Wellbeing Small Grant Scheme, opened on Friday 30 June and will run until Sunday 1 October 2017. It was set up to give communities the opportunity to promote local initiatives to support the mental health and wellbeing of people living within the Borough.

There is £10,000 available as part of the fund and community groups, individuals and organisations can apply for grants of up to £1,200 for local causes and projects that will support and improve mental health and wellbeing for local people.

The initiatives must benefit Brentwood’s communities and they must be delivered in the Borough between 1 November 2017 – 1 November 2018.

The bids will be assessed and reported to the Brentwood Health and Wellbeing Board in the Autumn, when a decision on the allocation of funding will be made.

Brentwood Health and Wellbeing Board Chair Councillor Olivia Sanders said: “This is an opportunity to get funding to help with your project to support the mental health and wellbeing of others.

Criteria includes supporting those that tackle health inequalities in the community by engaging hard to reach, vulnerable, socially isolated or at-risk groups. Your project may also involve helping people to recover from a long-term illness or be raising awareness of and increasing access to mental health services in our community.”

For more information and to apply, please visit www.brentwood.gov.uk/funding. For advice, support or guidance in relation to applying please email mhfunding@brentwood.gov.uk or telephone 01277 312500.
