Communities Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund

The Scottish Government have renewed funding for 22/23 as part of their Recovery and Renewal Fund to support mental health and well-being in communities across Scotland.

The intended outcome of the Fund is to develop a culture of mental wellbeing and prevention within local communities and across Scotland with improved awareness of how we can all stay well and help ourselves and others. The Fund will be distributed by Third Sector Interfaces (TSI’s), like DundeeTSI to community groups and organisations and will open for applications in Dundee on Friday 14th October 2022.

Dundee TSI is a partnership between Dundee Social Enterprise Network and Dundee Volunteer and Voluntary Action.
