Funding Available for Peer Support Groups in England and Wales

22 April 2021/Categories: Grants_and_Funding

A national fund is inviting applications from peer support, mutual aid or self-help groups in England and Wales to enable them to connect remotely, prepare to move their activities to face-to-face, or make their group more sustainable.

To be eligible, the peer support, mutual aid or self-help group must take place in a community setting (not NHS or local authority), and should be in some way led by the members of the community it engages. The group must benefit people or communities who live with mental ill-health, trauma and distress.

The fund particularly welcomes applications from:

  • Groups led by and for people from racialised communities/people of colour.
  • Groups led by and for young people (aged 18-25).
  • Groups who have been unable to meet during the COVID-19 pandemic, which may be due to digital poverty.

Grants of £200 to £500 are available.

The deadline for applications is 31 May 2021.
