Coronavirus Mental Health Fund

Coronavirus Mental Health Response Fund

Voluntary and community sector (VCS) organisations have a vital role working alongside our NHS colleagues to support anyone who has a mental health problem.  Due to the coronavirus pandemic, demand for mental health services is increasing.  To help VCS organisations based in England continue to provide mental health services - or provide additional support - organisations can apply for a Coronavirus Mental Health Response Fund (CMHRF) grant. Thanks to £5m support from government (the Department of Health and Social Care), grants of £20,000 or £50,000 are available for projects lasting up to 12 months.You can find out more about the fund and how to apply on both the Association of Mental Health Providers website and the Mind’s website
 
Support for smaller organisations or groups

As part of this funding programme, the National Survivor User Network (NSUN) will be administering a fund to support user-led organisations and smaller, constituted community organisations, who might not otherwise be eligible for a grant. Details are available from the NSUN website.
