Mental Health Grants Programme

Please note: all of this programme’s funding is now committed.

About the programme

Manchester Health and Care Commissioning (MHCC) have invested £330,000 in a new mental health grants programme. The grants programme is administered by Macc on behalf of MHCC.

The primary objectives of the grant programme are:
1. to increase the social inclusion within their neighbourhoods of people with serious and enduring mental health problems
2. to increase the take-up of Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) programme services among communities that find them difficult to access
3. to increase the level of support offered to people with mental health problems who find it difficult to access existing services in their neighbourhoods

About the projects

In all 77 eligible grant applications were submitted to the programme to be considered in the selection process. A shortlist of 35 bids was then recommended to the Grants Programme Board for approval and following due diligence checks the projects were awarded grants totalling £328,044.14.

January to 7 April 2017 was designated as a start-up period for all 35 projects. Project durations range from four to eighteen months though the average is twelve months. The grants programme is due to complete by the end of 2018.
