The Glasgow Community Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund is the local implementation of the Scottish Government’s Community Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund. The fund recognises the hugely important role that communities can play in bolstering the wellbeing of Glasgow’s citizens.

The fund was created specifically to provide financial support to local community projects that improve the mental health and wellbeing of local adults (age 16+). Up to £10,000 in grants were made available to groups that provide community connections and practical support. A key focus of the fund was to assist people who have been distressed, disadvantaged, or isolated, or whose mental health has been adversely affected by the pandemic.  

The Glasgow Community Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund first opened for applications on 17 November 2021 for applications from third sector organisations and Community Councils and is now closed. We will continue to share news about the fund and those supported here and on our social media channels.
