Due to the coronavirus pandemic, demand for mental health services is increasing.
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.
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, unconstituted community organisations, who might not otherwise be eligible for a grant. Details will be available from Monday 20 April on the NSUN website.

- Applicants are invited to apply at any time.
- It’s a fast track assessment process so applications will be assessed every two weeks and applicants will be informed of the outcome within a month of applying.
