New Suicide Prevention Innovation Grant Launched

As part of a suicide prevention campaign later this year, a fund has been launched by North Somerset Council to support local groups whose work helps to prevent suicide and self-harm across Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire. In particular, the council are looking for imaginative and innovative projects which aim to reduce the numbers of suicides in:

  • middle aged men
  • men and women aged 16-25
  • BAME communities
  • LGBTQ+ communities
  • Disabled communities

This innovation grant is available to support new or emerging projects. They can benefit from a small pot of funding that is intended to support initiatives that prevent suicides and reduce self-harm in Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire (BNSSG). Applicants can apply for one-off funding grants of up to £250 towards their project (or up to £500 where it is across BNSSG). There is a total funding pot of £4,500 available.

Applications for the fund will close on Friday 4 October 2019 and the application form can be found here. Completed application forms need to be submitted to: engagement@imhn.org
