Public Health – Leeds City Council and Leeds Community Foundation are working in partnership to fund local third sector community initiatives aimed at men with high risk of suicide.
They want to support social activities for men determined by local men themselves, and to provide outreach work with targeted communities in order to reduce social isolation.
The focus of this programme is on areas of need where activities for socially isolated men are lacking. The targeted areas are Inner South, Inner West and Inner East Leeds, as these are communities with the highest suicide rates involving socially isolated men.
The programme will initially run for three years with over £70,000 distributed annually through both small grants of up to £10,000 and large grants of up to £25,000.
For the full criteria and to submit an application, please visit the Leeds Community Foundation website.
