Coronavirus Mental Health Response Fund
Voluntary and community sector (VCS) organisations have a vital role working alongside our NHS colleagues to support anyone who has a mental health problem.
To respond to an anticipated increase in need as a direct result of the coronavirus pandemic, Mind launched two funds (England fund and Wales fund) to enable these organisations to continue to provide a service for those who need support.
Funding was available for registered charities to either:
- Scale up existing activity – for example, your organisation may manage a helpline or a forum that is experiencing an unprecedented amount of requests
- Adapt existing activity – for example, you may have traditionally delivered all of your services in-person and now want to adapt them in order to continue meeting the needs of existing, or new, service users
- Introduce new activity – you may want to introduce a new service that will meet the specific needs of your service users that arise due, in part, to the coronavirus crisis.
