The UK’s largest NHS mental health charity is calling for people to apply for grants of up to £30,000 to support projects that help people with mental illnesses in south London, writes Kit Heren…
The Maudsley Charity is asking people interested in its Community and Connections grant to get in touch for a chance to get between £20,000 and £30,000 over one or two years.
Projects must “make a positive contribution” to the lives of mentally ill people in Southwark, Lewisham, Lambeth or Croydon – the boroughs served by the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust (SLaM).
The scheme has a particular focus on funding projects working with people who are or who have been severely unwell. Organisers said they want to support projects that are committed to diversity and inclusion, and help people to be active in their own wellbeing and recovery.
Previous Community and Connection grants projects include support for Southwark, Lewisham, and Greenwich Samaritans to strengthen their outreach.
Get in touch by 4pm on 12th May 2021 via the Maudsley Charity website www.maudsleycharity.org/our-grants/community-and-connection-grants/
