The National Survivor User Network (NSUN) is administering a small fund to support user-led organisations (ULOs) and smaller, unconstituted community groups in England, who might not otherwise be eligible for a grant. Grants of up to £1000 will be available to support community action, peer support, mutual aid and other activities that will make a direct difference to the lives of people living with mental ill-health, trauma and distress during this Covid-19 period.
This fund will open by the end of April.
The NSUN grants are available to User Led Organisations across England who need additional funds to deliver their support and activities during Covid-19. You may be a peer support group, a mutual aid group, a community group, a Disabled People’s Organisation (DPO), or a ULO (this is not an exhaustive list).
The NSUN grant is for organisations or collectives or groups which may or may not be constituted (but are not set up as a charity or a community interest company (CIC), for example) or who otherwise are not eligible for the main Coronavirus Mental Health Response Fund.
You will need to be a member of NSUN. Membership is free for ULOs and community groups, and you can sign up here.
If you do not have a bank account, you are still eligible to apply providing you meet the criteria above.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about eligibility.
