Revenue grants are available for non-profit organisations to support suicide prevention activities delivered in England from 2023 to 2025.
The funding is for voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations providing suicide prevention services, activities or interventions that are free of charge to their service users in England only.
Applicants must meet the strategic objectives of the fund which are to support:
Non-profit organisations to configure their suicide prevention services and activities to better meet the increased demand seen in recent years.
A range of diverse and innovative activity that can prevent suicides, both at a national and community level.
There is particular interest in funding suicide prevention activity targeted at the following:
Groups of concern
Children and young people
People who have previously self-harmed
People in contact with mental health services
People in contact with the justice system
Pregnant women and new mothers
Geographic areas where demand for services is greatest and where there are disparities in provision and access to services, compared to other regions in England.
Marginalised groups, such as ethnic minority groups including Gypsy Roma and Traveller communities, and LGBTQ+ communities.
Please note, organisations and groups are encouraged to apply even if their proposed work does not meet some or any of the criteria above, provided their project meets the strategic objectives of the fund and they can make a convincing case of the need for funding.
