There is an opportunity to apply for grants for projects to support CYP Mental Health for 0-25’s. Here is the outline of timescales and requirements:

“Applications are invited from existing schemes to trial a new approach to helping children and young people with their mental health. The deadline for applications is midday on Friday 15 February 2019.

Projects should:

  • adopt community and person-centred approaches to improving the mental health of children and young people aged 0 to 25 years
  • particularly support children and young people through life-changing events
  • have strong local connections already in place
  • be delivered by the VCSE sector
