One in ten children aged between 5 and 16 years has a mental health problem. Let’s work together to help them.

We’re pleased to offer a new Emotional Wellbeing Fund to help Bristol’s voluntary, community, equalities and faith groups to run activities aimed at improving the wellbeing of children and their families.

This new opportunity, funded by Bristol City Council for one year, will offer grants of up to £1,000 per activity aimed at children of primary school age and their families.

This programme (totalling £30,900) will meet the needs of vulnerable groups, along with areas with identified poor mental health. The aim of the activities will be to:

  • Raise awareness of the importance of positive mental health and address the stigma attached to poor mental health
  • Improve access to information, support and services
  • Promote self-help and the importance of reaching out for help as early as possible when problems arise

All funded activities must be completed by 31st July 2017. (Want some ideas for activities? Follow this link). Applications will be considered on a bi-monthly basis with the following deadlines:

  • 10th March 2017
  • 10th May 2017
  • 10th July 2017 (pending availability of funds)
