The Scottish Government have announced a new fund 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 26th November.

Monitoring is likely to include information about the number and types of people who benefited. Where it is appropriate we would also like to see photographs, videos or case studies of your project, and to be able to come visit the project and meet with the people involved. We want the work of this fund to inform future policy and funding decisions. With this in mind we may also create opportunities for great projects to showcase their work and the impact they have on citizens and communities. Applicants are encouraged to participate in these.
