Mind begins £7.5m grants initiative

Mental health charity Mind has launched a £7.5m grant-giving programme to fund environmental projects that work with people who have mental health problems.

Ecominds, funded by the Big Lottery Fund's environment programme, Changing Spaces, will distribute funds to 125 projects from community groups, schools and businesses in England over the next five years.

The funding is divided into four categories: small grants of up to £20,000; medium grants from £20,000 to £60,000; large grants of between £60,000 and £150,000; and five ‘flagship' grants of between £150,000 and £250,000.
Applicants to Mind must demonstrate how they plan to involve people with mental health problems in their environmental projects.

The scheme will operate a rolling application programme that assesses about 30 bids three times a year. Successful proposals will have a maximum of three and a half years to complete their projects using the grant.
