As an inclusive funder, we are here to create new grant opportunities for our East London community members living with mental health or long term health issues.
Everyone has a mental health, affected from time to time by stress, anxiety and depression. Longer term mental health issues can include disorders, such as bipolar, eating or personality disorders.
People with long term mental health or health issues that have ‘substantial’ and ‘long-term’ negative effect on your ability to do normal daily activities can be considered disabled under the Equality Act 2010.
We are excited by the new ideas you might have for creative projects or initiatives, to support yourself or others. We also fund projects that provide job, training or skills development opportunities too.
We welcome funding applications from local mental health organisations, groups and businesses.
If you want to get an idea off the ground, check out our funding schemes to support initiatives in Hackney, Newham, Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest.
