A Coronavirus Mental Health Response Fund (CMHRF) has been made available by Mind, to help voluntary and community sector (VCS) organisations based in England to continue to provide mental health services.

Thanks to £5m support from government (the Department of Health and Social Care), grants of £20,000 or £50,000 are available for projects lasting up to 12 months.

As part of this funding programme, the National Survivor User Network (NSUN) will be administering a fund to support user-led organisations and smaller, unconstituted community organisations, who might not otherwise be eligible for a grant. Details will be available from Monday 20 April on the NSUN website.

It’s a fast track assessment process so applications will be assessed every two weeks and applicants will be informed of the outcome within a month of applying
