Comic Relief: Thriving Not Just Surviving

A new fund has been launched to support vulnerable and disadvantaged young men with mental health problems in the UK.

The new £1.75 million fund is for work with vulnerable and disadvantaged men, aged between 11 and 20 years, who are experiencing mental health problems. Comic Relief is focusing on this age group as 50% of adults who experience mental health problems present symptoms in their teens.

It is expected that approximately 20 grants will be awarded across the UK. Grants of between £100,000 and £150,000 are available for up to three years’ work in the UK.

Priority will be given to applications which:

Applications will be accepted from specialist mental health and/or youth organisations with particular interest in organisations that are based in the community in which they work. Partnership bids are welcome. Only one proposal per applicant can be submitted.

The deadline for applications is 13 October 2017 (midday).
