Suicide Prevention Fund 2021 to 2022

Aims/priorities: The funding is intended to support suicide prevention VCSE organisations and groups to meet the increased need or demand for services, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, and enhance service provision, with a particular focus on high-risk groups.

High-risk groups are defined in the latest progress report of the National Suicide Prevention Strategy as those who were already at a higher risk of suicide, as well as those for whom there is particular concern in the context of the pandemic.

These include:

  • Middle-aged men
  • Children and young people
  • People in contact with mental health services
  • People who self-harm
  • People who are economically vulnerable
  • NHS and social care staff
  • People in contact with the criminal justice system
  • People who were disproportionately impacted by the pandemic
  • Ethnic minorities.

Grant amount: Organisations can apply for the lower of either:

  • The value of eligible activities from April 2021 to March 2022. The funds can be backdated to cover activities from April 2021.
  • 25% of annual income.

The maximum grant available to micro-organisations and groups is £5,000 (this is from the ring-fenced pot of money).
