Suicide prevention grassroot community funding projects
What was the funding about?
This funding was provided by the Suicide Prevention Alliance and coordinated by the Stamp It Out Partnership Hub on behalf of a successful allocation of money from NHS England which is part of a number of initiatives that aim to reduce suicide rates.
What were we trying to achieve?
The aim of the fund was for local organisations to develop and implement community-based activities that will have a positive effect on the mental health and emotional wellbeing of residents, particularly those people who are most vulnerable or isolated within our communities.
The money has been allocated to 11 organisations and who shared how much the projects brought into people’s lives.
