Feedback from panel members

Following the first panel, we collated feedback from panel members about the applications that were assessed. Feedback included the following:

  • There was a good range of organisations that applied.
  • There was a wide range of target groups proposed activity is for.
  • There were also lots of similar proposed activities.
  • There was a lack of clarity on how integrated organisations are to their local mental health sector.
  • There was not always a clear link between activity and specific challenges presented by coronavirus pandemic.


Fund status

Please note: the fund is still currently paused for new applications but we will communicate here if and when the fund does reopen, so please do check back.
