Community Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund

This section under construction
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. Further information concerning funding for 23/24 will be released as made available.

Whole Family Wellbeing Fund 2023-26

In July 2022, the Scottish Government announced that it is allocating £32m Whole Family Wellbeing Funding nationally as part of its commitment to support implementation of the findings of the Independent Care Review – 

  • The review took place from 2017-2020
  • It listened to over 5,500 voices, half of which were children & young people who have experienced the care system
  • The conclusion of the review was The Promise – a clear statement of what needs to change to support the lives and wellbeing of our children, young people, adults and families across Scotland 

The Scottish Government aims to ensure that every family that needs support gets the right family support at the right time, to fulfil children’s rights to be raised safely in their own families, for as long as it is needed. This is in line with the National Principles of Holistic Family Support and the ambition set out to #KeepThePromise.

The aim is to shift investment towards early intervention and prevention activities, to ensure families can access support before they reach crisis point.


Dundee Children’s Service Planning Partnership will receive £1.16 million per annum of this funding through to 2026.

Dundee Volunteer and Voluntary Action, through stakeholder engagement, will be supporting the development of proposals for this fund.
