Leeds Community Foundation

Suicide Prevention Grants are now open for applications!

Suicide Prevention Grants is a partnership between Leeds Community Foundation and Public Health which aims to fund local third sector community initiatives to support people at risk of suicide. The fund aims to support social activities determined by local participants and to provide outreach work with targeted communities to reduce social isolation and promote protective factors for wellbeing.

Key information 

  • We encourage applications from under-served and/or under-represented communities across all our funding opportunities
  • Work to address risk factors for suicide or work targeted towards population groups at risk of suicide as identified nationally Suicide Prevention Strategy for England (2023-2028) and/or locally Leeds Suicide Audit (2019-2021)
  • Applicants can be based outside of Leeds but must demonstrate strong links to Leeds and the communities/participants they hope to work with within Leeds
  • The amount requested should be at least 50% of the total cost of the activity
  • Only one application per organisation can be considered
  • Small grants and large grants are available

 

Small grants

Examples of activity that can be funded

  • Support to smaller and/or new groups
  • Pilot projects to test and develop innovative work
  • Community capacity building
  • Small scale research and market testing

Applicants will need to demonstrate that they are either delivering new activity, increasing the reach of existing activity or keeping activities going in relation to suicide prevention work with relevant communities. Care will need to be taken to ensure the grants are not used to fund services that should be a statutory responsibility, i.e. there needs to be some element of additionality in their work.

Grant Size: Up to £10,000
Location: Leeds
Duration: Up to 12 months
Deadline: 22/04/2024 at 12 noon
Decisions: June 2024
