Suicide Prevention Grassroots Community Funding
As part of the national aim to reduce male suicide rates, funding is now available for local organisations to develop and implement community-based activities that will have a positive effect on the mental health and emotional wellbeing of local male residents aged 25-65 – particularly those people who are most vulnerable or isolated within our communities.
This funding is being provided by the Tees Suicide Prevention Taskforce on behalf of Local Authorities (Hartlepool/Middlesbrough/Redcar & Cleveland/Stockton-on-Tees) through funding allocated by NHS England.
Voluntary and community organisations can apply for grants between £1,000 and £5,000, and preference will be given to projects that demonstrate innovative ways of engaging with men.
