BUPA Mental Health Funding Programme closes 31st May

The BUPA Foundation have opened their Mental Health Funding programme offering grants of up to £20,000 to fund 12-18 month projects supporting people in mid life who suffer from poor mental health.

They want to fund practical, community-focused projects that will support and improve people's mental health at what evidence suggests is a critical life-stage. The following criteria are to be met:

  • Your project or initiative will support people in mid-life. Suggested age range 30s to 50s.
  • Your project focuses specifically on supporting and improving people's mental health and wellbeing, rather than on addressing wider social issues.
  • Your application clearly explains how you will reach, engage and directly support individuals in improving their mental health and wellbeing.
  • Your application outlines how you will measure and evaluate the difference your project makes to the mental health and wellbeing of individual participants.

There is a 2 stage application process. The initial deadline for online applications is 31st May. A selection of applicants will then be asked for more information before a final decision is made.
