Catholic Bishops’ Mental Health Project Small Grants Available

Thanks to the Day for Life funds generously given by parishioners the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales has established a Small Grants Fund for mental health projects to further encourage and inspire us as communities of understanding.

The Fund is making available £50,000. There is no minimum grant limit and it is anticipated that the majority of grants will range from a few hundred pounds to a maximum of £10,000. Smaller projects are encouraged.

Who Can Apply?
Applications are invited from any Catholic communities at local level, e.g. parishes, schools, hospitals, universities, prisons or organisations in England and Wales to facilitate mental health projects. 

In every project cooperative partnership working with local churches, local charities, voluntary services, agencies and NHS initiatives is highly recommended.Descriptions of projects undertaken in the first round of grants held in 2011 can be seen here:
