Handelsbanken Mental Health & Wellbeing Fund

*Open for applications now*

Deadline for applications 5pm, Friday 2 March 2018

The Handelsbanken Mental Health & Wellbeing Fund has been created to help sustain and develop the support and services that voluntary sector organisations can offer to alleviate a range of mental health and wellbeing issues in the community.  From counselling and befriending to support for carers, local provision can be a lifeline for people facing isolation and exclusion with nowhere to turn.

The Fund does not aim to fund statutory healthcare services, but to support voluntary and community sector interventions which promote mental wellbeing in the widest sense and for all ages.

Grants of up to £5,000 are available.

Who can apply

Charitable, community and voluntary groups based or clearly operating in Norfolk can apply. This includes Churches/ PCCs and Parish Councils where the project is clearly community focused and inclusive.

Please refer to our FAQs for specific guidance on the types of organisation/ project that are eligible to apply. Please note the specific guidance in the FAQs for Social Enterprises/ CICs.

Schools are not eligible to apply.

How to apply

Norfolk Community Foundation has launched a new way to apply online, which enables applicants to complete more of the process entirely online if they wish.  If you have any problems at all using the new system please contact the Grants Team for support. 

If you are using an old version of eg. Internet Explorer you may find it helpful to download a copy of Google Chrome to ensure you have the best experience – this browser is free to download here http://www.google.com/chrome/  

Independent reference: Please note: we no longer require applicants to provide an independent reference with every application. Instead you will be asked to provide contact details for a referee within the online application form and we will contact the referee where we feel this will be helpful. Please see our FAQs for guidance on choosing an independent referee.
