Project funding available

South Antrim Community Network is inviting community and voluntary sector organisations within Carrickfergus to apply for Public Health Agency funding to address the themes of Suicide Prevention, Self-Harm, Mental Health and Emotional Wellbeing.

Grants are available at the level of £1,000 per project. Applications may be considered for more strategic projects over £1,000, dependent on evidence of need and availability of resources.

Applications will be assessed on the potential to improve health and wellbeing and on the ability to complete the work by the end of February 2015, including evaluation by mid-March 2015.

Applications will open on April 1. The closing date for completed applications is May 6.

The small grants programme aims to promote awareness of issues around mental health problems, and encourage communities to be proactive in promoting positive mental health and tackling the contributing factors of self-harm and suicide.
