Stockport’s Equity Foundation have launched a new round of funding through their Health and Wellbeing programme which supports projects improving life expectancy and reducing health inequalities in Stockport.
This round of funding focuses on supporting projects which improve mental health and well being and are specifically inviting projects which address one of their priority themes.
Equity Foundation are looking to support projects which will:
• Increase the mental health and resilience of young people aged 11-18. They are particularly interested in, but not limited to, schemes run in community environments outside of core school times.
• Support men’s mental well being. The foundation are particularly interested in projects which will engage men at risk of isolation who may be less likely to get involved with more traditional schemes such as coffee mornings.
The application window is open for 4 weeks, applications must be received by 5pm on Wednesday 7th February in order to be considered. The panel will then meet on Feb 20th to discuss the bids. Decisions are expected to be announced the same week.
The full details of the fund, including guidelines and application forms are available on the Equity Foundation website
