Communities Mental Health & Wellbeing Fund
This new fund is being delivered and managed by Third Sector Interfaces (TSIs) in partnership with local integrated health authorities and other partners including Community Planning Partnerships and local authority mental health leads. The fund aims to support adult community-based initiatives to help address the impact of distress and mental ill health caused by social isolation and loneliness, as well as addressing the mental health inequalities exacerbated by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Grass roots community groups and third sector organisations will be able to benefit from the funds to deliver activities and programmes to people to reconnect and revitalise communities building on examples of good practice which have emerged throughout the pandemic.As a result of Covid-19, we know across the population people are reporting reduced mental health, increased distress and mental health problems and older people have been significantly affected. This fund is a great opportunity at a local level to address these big challenges. Full details about how to access the fund through your local TSI are available on the TSI Scotland Network website
