Comic Relief have launched a new fund aimed at tackling mental health through sport.
Ahead of the Game, Sport and Mental Health funding will support projects that work with the most marginalised people, in the most disadvantaged communities in the UK, Ghana, Uganda, and Rwanda.
The funding has two aims:
- To support new or existing work that combines sports based approaches with quality mental health support to reduce distress and/or improve mental wellbeing.
- To contribute to the growing body of evidence by learning from projects about what approaches are effective for whom, in what contexts.
Grants of between £150,000 and £450,000 are available for a minimum of three years and a maximum of five years.
