Communities Mental Health & Wellbeing Fund

About the Fund

The Communities Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund has been established in 2021 with £15 million allocated to support mental health and wellbeing in communities across Scotland. On 7th May 2022, the Minister for Mental Wellbeing and Social Care, Kevin Stewart MSPP, announced that the fund will continue for another year.

This fund is being delivered and managed by Third Sector Interfaces (TSIs) in partnership with local integrated health authorities and other partners including Community Planning Partnerships and local authority mental health leads.

In Year 1, the fund has supported nearly 2,000 community projects including sport, outdoor initiatives, arts and crafts and nature, and covering groups such as older people, those with long-term conditions or disabilities, people living in rural areas and the LGBT community.

How to Access the Fund

Third sector organisations will be able to apply to access the funding via their local Third Sector Interface (TSI). Each TSI will be publishing details of their own eligibility criteria and the application process on their own respective channels.

Prospective applicants are advised that applications will be made via their local TSI and NOT via the TSI Scotland Network.
