Communities Mental Health & Wellbeing Fund

This Fund has been established with £15 million allocated to support mental health and wellbeing in communities across Scotland. It will be 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.

The fund aims to support adult community-based initiatives to help address the impact of distress and mental ill health caused by social isolation and loneliness, as well as tacking the impact of social isolation, loneliness and the mental health inequalities worsened by the pandemic.

Grass roots community groups and third sector organisations will be able to benefit from the funds to deliver activities and programmes to people to reconnect and revitalise communities building on examples of good practice which have emerged throughout the pandemic.

Application timings differ by area and can be made via your local Third Sector Interface.
