COMING SOON: Highland Communities Mental Health & Wellbeing Fund for Adults Year 4

The Scottish Government announced on Monday 25 March, that £15million for the Communities Mental Health & Wellbeing Fund for Adults will be provided for a fourth year!

The CMHW Fund for Adults will continue to be distributed via Highland TSI working with local partners. Once we've received all the detail, we will be able to announce the launch date and confirm what may be eligible for funding. If you want to receive email bulletins direct to your inbox, you can sign up for HTSI membership here.
 

This fund is to support community based initiatives that promote and develop good mental health and wellbeing and/or mitigate and protect against the impact of distress and mental ill health within the adult population.

Applications for Year 3 (2023 - 2024) of the fund are CLOSED from 9/1/24.

Fund Information

The fund aims to support community-led initiatives that promote and develop good mental health and wellbeing and/or mitigate and protect against the impact of distress and mental ill health for people in Highland who are 16 or over. These should be new projects, or significant development/expansion of existing projects.

In the meantime, please begin the process by gathering evidence of community engagement/involvement, which:

a)    supports the need(s) you aim to address,

b)    supports the solution(s) you propose to offer, and

c)    demonstrates how lived experience will shape the delivery of the proposed project.

More information is available in the documents below.

How much can I apply for?
The guidance from the Government is that most of the grants will be for less than £10k. This should give you an indication of the scale and scope of the projects that are appropriate. Remember that this is for small-scale, grassroots community activity.

 

Can I apply for more than £10k?

The panel will have some discretion to award grants above £10K but this is likely in only a few cases. Applicants must contact us as early as possible to discuss your reasons for seeking a higher-than-average grant amount before submitting an application.
