The 2017 Year of Mental Health is a community led and organised initiative which aims to help reduce stigma about mental health and raise vital funds to improve local opportunities. Berkshire Community Foundation has partnered with Brighter Berkshire to raise £200,000 to fund local projects / voluntary organisations supporting those with mental health issues.
This fund is now closed for applications.
Shortlisted groups will be notified in January 2018 about presenting their project to a BCF panel on 7 March 2018. Applications not shortlisted for the ‘showcase event’ may be considered under alternative funding streams.
