Community funding for mental health and wellbeing

Community groups are being invited to apply for funding through the Communities Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund.

The Fund was launched by the Scottish Government in 2021 and it was announced in May this year that it would continue for a second year, with £15m of funding available to third sector organisations.

This fund is being delivered and managed by Third Sector Interfaces (TSIs) in partnership with local integrated health authorities and other partners including Community Planning Partnerships and local authority mental health leads.

Last year, the fund supported nearly 2,000 community projects including sport, outdoor initiatives, arts and crafts and nature, and covering groups such as older people, those with long-term conditions or disabilities, people living in rural areas and the LGBT community.

Third sector organisations will be able to apply to access the funding via their local Third Sector Interface (TSI). Each TSI will be publishing details of their own eligibility criteria and the application process on their own respective channels.

Find out more about the Communities Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund, and how to apply in your area, on the TSI Scotland Network.
