The adult community mental health transformation (No Wrong Door) programme across Hampshire, Southampton, Isle of Wight and Portsmouth would like to remind people of a current grant funding opportunity for community and voluntary sector (CVS) groups. Grants are available to run a project, programme or activity which will improve access, outcomes, experience, data collection or increase mental health awareness for underrepresented groups.
Groups of interest include: BAME communities, men’s communities, white other groups, veterans or protected groups, gypsies, Roma and traveller communities, bereaved people, LGBTQIA+ people, people living in deprived areas, refugees and asylum seekers, migrants, homeless people including rough sleepers, prisoners, people with alcohol/substance misuse, people living with autism, learning difficulties and disabilities or people and families affected by eating disorders. Other groups may be accepted by the panel if there is evidence of a need in the local area.
For more information, please find our guidance and application form on our website: https://www.hampshiresouthamptonandisleofwightccg.nhs.uk/news/community-and-voluntary-sector-mental-health-grants-to-reduce-health-inequalities
You can also come speak to us at a virtual drop-in session on MS Teams, every Wednesday from 3-5pm via this link. Applications will close on the 30th November 2021.
Finally, as part of the advancing mental health equalities (AMHE) project, we are building a network of CVS groups to enable co-production. For any group who are interested in joining this network, please send an email to email@example.com with the subject title ‘AMHE network’.
