The Liverpool ONE Foundation has issued a final call for applications to its 2021 Children and Young People’s Mental Health and Wellbeing funding programme. The process will offer up to £30,000 per application for successful charities in the Liverpool City Region.

 

Managed by The Community Foundations for Lancashire and Merseyside (CFLM), The Liverpool ONE Foundation is seeking to help decrease the number of people under 25 years of age suffering from poor mental health.  The Children and Young People’s Mental Health and Wellbeing programme will provide up to £15,000 in funding per year for two years for all successful grant applicants.

 

The programme rolls out at a crucial time for the community, with a new study by Prince’s Trust revealing that, of people under the age of 25 in the UK, half say their mental health has worsened since the start of the pandemic, and one in four feels ‘unable to cope with life’

 

Applications for funding are invited from organisations within the community and voluntary sector which provide mental health intervention, prevention and support projects.  Examples of eligible initiatives include:

 

·           Projects that look to raise awareness of mental health triggers for young people (e.g. bullying, online triggers, peer pressure)

·           Initiatives developing young people’s resilience with practical methods and techniques, to equip skills for mental wellbeing

·           Family support, such as projects aimed at parents to prevent the development or escalation of mental health problems in children and young people

·           Peer mentoring projects with a focus on youth mental health and wellbeing

·           Projects that look to achieve a positive mind-set change around mental health

·           Applications from community and voluntary sector organisation for projects taking place within schools, as long as additional to national curriculum

 

The closing date for applications is 4pm on January 29.

 

Rae Brooke, Chief Executive at CFLM commented: “The significant funding from the Children and Young People’s Mental Health and Wellbeing programme is designed to provide substantial, longer-term assistance for the delivery of effective resources.  Our objective is to support more of Merseyside’s incredible grassroots organisations to continue to build a stronger community together.”

 

Donna Howitt, Marketing & Communications Director at Liverpool ONE, added: “We are pleased The Foundation is able to offer funding at such a vital time for young people, and we look forward to seeing the impact of this programme over the next two years.”

 

Applications will be reviewed by The Liverpool ONE Foundation panel, which includes Colette Taylor from Merseyside Youth Association; Tom Mansell from The Westminster Foundation; and Lee Pennington, Charity Director at The Open Door Centre.

 

The Liverpool ONE Foundation’s recent funding recipients include Womens Enterprising Breakthrough, Liverpool Lighthouse, Home Start Knowsley, Yellow House, Shaftesbury Youth Club and Conquer Life CIC.  Since 2019, the Foundation has donated over £2.3m to community projects, and directly benefitted approximately 375,000 people.
