Mind Coronavirus Mental Health Response Fund (currently paused)

The funding is available for registered charities to either:

 Scale up existing activity – for example, your organisation may manage a

helpline or a forum that is experiencing an unprecedented amount of requests

 Adapt existing activity – for example, you may have traditionally delivered

all of your services in-person and now want to adapt them in order to

continue meeting the needs of existing, or new, service users

 Introduce new activity – You may want to introduce a new service that

will meet the specific needs of your service users that arise due, in part, to

the coronavirus crisis.

What funding is available?

Two sizes of grants are available:
Service Delivery Grants
 Large grants: up to £50,000
 Small grants: up to £20,000. The minimum grant available is £5,000.
Organisations can only apply for one grant, regardless of grant size.
For organisations applying for work across at least three English regions we will
consider awards of up to £100,000. Please use the large grants application form in
these instances.
There are different application forms for large and small grants. All grants will be
scored against the same criteria.

Funding is for a maximum of twelve months. Successful applicants will be expected
to start delivery of their activities within one month of accepting funding.

Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis from fund go-live date (April 2020),
and will be accepted until the funding pot is allocated (which we anticipate will be
within 8-10 weeks).
