GM Mental Wellbeing Grants

GMCVO, working in partnership with 10GM, have launched a grants programme to support people from communities of identity or experience, based in Greater Manchester, that may struggle to achieve higher levels of mental wellbeing. 

The communities we want to reach are:

•    People from black asian minority ethnic (BAME) communities
•    People living with long term physical and mental health conditions
•    Disabled people
•    Socially isolated older people
•    Military veterans 
•    People who are unemployed
•    People who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, questioning/queer and/or intersex (LGBTQI)
•    Carers 

Funded by Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership, a total of £175,000 will be given out between now and December 2020. 

The grants will be awarded, in stages, to small, grass roots voluntary and community groups and social enterprises that will support people to develop higher levels of mental wellbeing. 

The first stage, a rolling micro grants programme, is now live. Grants of £100 - £500 will be awarded, on an ongoing basis, during May and June 2020. They will be awarded for activities that support the mental wellbeing of the above communities while working within the current government social distancing restrictions.

Decisions on applications will be made within three weeks. 

There will be further grants stages announced towards the end of June.
