The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) has made available £5.4 million for a grant fund to support suicide prevention VCSE organisations across 2021 to 2022. A portion of the grant fund was ring-fenced specifically to help support small community-led and user-led groups and organisations.

Following an open tender process PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) were selected to administer the grant fund on DHSC’s behalf.

Applications were open from 2 December 2021 to 16 January 2022 for grants from the £5.4 million fund.

Applications which passed eligibility and due diligence checks were reviewed by an independent expert panel which included people with lived experience.

Following the panel, 113 organisations have been awarded funding. Details of awards made to organisations are on this page.

This page also contains a document detailing the eligibility and terms and conditions of these awards. While fund applications are no longer open, this information is preserved here for reference.
