Voluntary and community sector organisations have a vital role working alongside the NHS colleagues to support anyone who has a mental health problem.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, demand for mental health services is increasing.

To help VCS organisations based in England continue to provide mental health services - or provide additional support - you can apply for a Coronavirus Mental Health Response Fund (CMHRF) grant.

Thanks to £5m support from Government (the Department of Health and Social Care), grants of £20,000 or £50,000 are available for projects lasting up to 12 months.

On behalf of mental health providers in England, Mind is administering the fund in partnership with the Mental Health Consortia (MHC), who represent the leading mental health organisations in England.

The National Survivor User Network (NSUN) will be administering part of the fund to support user-led organisations and smaller, un-constituted community organisations, who might not otherwise be eligible for a grant. Details will be available on the NSUN website.

You can find out more about the fund and how to apply on either the Association of Mental Health Providers website or the Mind’s website.
