Perth and Kinross Communities Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund

PKAVS Third Sector Interface (TSI) and Perth and Kinross Health and Social Care Partnership are delighted to launch the Perth and Kinross Communities Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund. 

Administered by the TSI, on behalf of the Scottish Government, this fund recognises the significance of early intervention and preventative mental health and wellbeing support that is anchored in local communities.

We have been allocated £412,861.80 to promote and support the conditions for good mental health and wellbeing across Perth and Kinross by March 31st 2022.  Please note, this is the deadline by which all funding must be allocated.  All projects and activities have a 16 month delivery timeframe, from the date the grant funding is received by the applicant. 

Our approach to funding is anchored in inclusivity, accessibility, equality and ‘doing things differently’.  In response to your feedback, comments and suggestions at our Build Back Better sessions and, Be Connected partnership events with the Gannochy Trust, we are trialling a Human Learning Systems Approach.  More details on this are available in the guidance notes.

Funding is open to both individual organisations and to partnerships/collaborations. 

  • Individual organisations can apply for between £1,000 to £15,000 by clicking here
  • Partnerships can submit applications valued between £5,000 to £40,000 by clicking here
