Manchester Wellbeing Fund - Get Involved!
Have you heard of the Manchester Wellbeing Fund? If not, don't worry, after reading this bog post you'll know exactly how to get involved.
Manchester Wellbeing Fund, part of Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust (GMMH), is a fund for groups who are passionate about mental wellbeing in their communities. It's designed to support individual projects rather than provide core funding for organisations. GMMH's Manchester Wellbeing Fund can help new groups to become established, or support existing ones. They welcome proposals that might involve a particular community of interest as well as those for just one neighbourhood, they also want to hear from service users who live with mental health issues and want to support others.
Grants of between £250 and £3,000 are available. This is not currently a Greater Manchester fund so it can only support projects which are based within the Manchester City Council local authority area.
The Manchester Wellbeing Fund can fund:
- New projects or existing projects that do not have significant funding.
- Running costs for the project, such as catering, venue hire, electricity, heating and travel.
- A sessional worker to facilitate your project – a sessional worker would be someone who works for a limited but specified number of hours and is self-employed.
- Materials and equipment needed to deliver the project.
