We were looking to fund projects which either addressed the needs of the high risk groups identified in our 2021 to 2025 Kent and Medway Suicide Prevention Strategies or address the themes identified by the Kent and Medway Listens engagement project.

At least £100,000 was available, of which a minimum of £50,000 must have gone to projects supporting children and young people (CYP).

We were particularly keen to assess bids which support people (including children and young people):

  • who self harm or who have made a previous suicide attempt
  • from seldom heard communities
  • who are struggling with the cost of living increases
  • who are affected by domestic abuse
  • living with long COVID
  • who struggle with substance misuse as well as mental ill health.

Applicants could have applied for grants ranging from £500 to £15,000.

Applications closed on 1 August 2022.

Funded projects need to be delivered by 31 March 2023.
