Coronavirus Mental Health Response Fund Wales
Thanks to £270,000 support from Comic Relief and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), Mind launched the Coronavirus Mental Health Response Fund – Wales in response to the Coronavirus pandemic. Its purpose is to help mental health VCS organisations based in Wales continue to provide services - or provide additional support.
The Fund, which closed for applications in August, allowed organisations to apply for grants of up to £50,000 for projects lasting up to 31 March 2021, with £5,000 being the smallest grant available.
