Communities Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund

The Scottish Government launched the new Communities Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund on Friday 15th October 2021. This new fund has been established with £15 million allocated to support adult mental health and wellbeing in communities across Scotland. 

Here, in East Renfrewshire, this fund is being distributed via Voluntary Action East Renfrewshire SCIO (VAER), in partnership with our local  Integrated Joint Board (IJB), Community Planning Partnership (CPP) and community organisations through our Wellbeing Network.

The ambition of this fund is to support initiatives that promote mental health and wellbeing at a small scale, grassroots, community level. It should be accessible to all groups, no matter how small or inexperienced they are. It can support both new and existing groups or projects. These do not have to have mental health and wellbeing as their main focus, but the application does have to clearly benefit the mental wellbeing of people in their community.
