The Department of Health and Social Care’s £10 million grant for suicide prevention Voluntary Community and Social Enterprise organisations
The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) is granting suicide prevention Voluntary Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) organisations across England £10 million which will span across 2023-24 to 2024-25.
The purpose of the grant is to support the VCSE sector to meet the increased demand, brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic and the cost of living crisis, as well as supporting the development of innovative preventative activities and services, aimed at people at elevated risk of suicide.
With the grant due to be made available in the coming months, DHSC is encouraging all applicants who are interested in applying to sign up to the 'Find a Grant' portal. This will enable prospective applicants to receive guidance on how to apply for the grant, information on the eligibility criteria, objectives and requirements for the application process, as well as updates on when applications will be open.
Following the launch, the DHSC will be hosting an online webinar to answer any questions from prospective applicants.
