This fund is designed for individuals passionate about creating unique and innovative recovery opportunities. We are looking for recovery-focused project ideas that could benefit from a small amount of financial support.

We can provide funding ranging from £50 to £750 per project. Additionally, project leaders can benefit from our community development knowledge, receiving light-touch mentoring or more hands-on support as needed to get started.

We encourage individuals with lived experience of mental health challenges to apply, particularly if the project will aid in your own recovery as well. No prior project management experience is necessary. If this is your first community initiative, we may be able, and will do our best to, provide connections and resources to support you.
