FUNDING: The Smiles Fund by Walkers and Comic Relief – Arts and Comedy for positive Mental Wellbeing

August 19, 2021

The Smiles Fund by Walkers and Comic Relief is inviting proposals which use participation in the arts and comedy to challenge stigma and provide community-based support for people who are experiencing emerging symptoms of poor mental wellbeing at an early stage. Research during the Covid-19 pandemic shows that some groups have been the worst affected in terms of mental wellbeing and we are particularly keen to reach them as the effects of the pandemic continue to be felt. This includes, but is not limited to, people facing:

  • discrimination and disadvantage
  • prolonged uncertainty and unemployment
  • emerging mental wellbeing challenges
  • loss and isolation

Please note that this fund is for work with adults (over 18) only and we will not be able to support applications for work with anyone under the age of 18.

We are happy to fund proposals which include a mixture of project delivery and core costs.

APPLICATION WINDOW CLOSES: Wednesday 15th September 2021 at 11am BST

FUNDING AVAILABLE: Funding is available for a minimum of 18 months to a maximum of 30 months. We will fund investments from £100,000-£300,000
