Mental Wellbeing Innovation Fund

NHS Brighton & Hove (the CCG) and the public health team at the City Council are now inviting bids for the second round of the Mental Wellbeing Innovation Fund.  The theme for projects in 2016 is social connections and preventing loneliness, with priority for people living in deprived areas, in  poor quality housing or homeless, or living alone; also children who are carers or who are looked after. They are looking for innovation – in reaching those who may not normally access services, in the opportunities or activities offered to people, and in partnerships.

There is less funding available than last year: £55,000 in total, with a maximum of £5,000 per project.

The application form and details of the process are at:

The deadline for applications is 5pm on Monday 16 November 2015, and projects should be completed within the calendar year 2016.
