Movember: Scaling What Works in Community and Workplace Grant

Groups delivering male mental health initiatives within a community or workplace setting have until the end of January 2022 to apply for funding to scale up the reach and impact of their activities.

Grants of between £200,000 and £400,000 are available to scale community and workplace initiatives that support mental health and wellbeing in men and boys (aged 12 and over) across the UK. The Scaling What Works in Community and Workplace Grant will identify evidence-based initiatives that take a prevention and/or early intervention perspective and incorporate a gendered lens to improve mental health and wellbeing and help them accelerate project delivery, evidence, and scalability.

Eligible activities must:

  • Be an existing programme operating in the real world.
  • Have a specified measurable outcome, such as a reduction in mental health symptoms or improved literacy.
  • Have testable goals.
  • Have adequate referral pathways/signposting to support from mental health professionals.

Proposed initiatives should target men and boys from the following audiences:

  • Cultural and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities.
  • Regional and remote communities.
  • GBTQI communities.
  • Socially disadvantaged communities.
  • High-risk occupations, such as construction, mining, and low skilled workers.
  • Those experiencing or at risk of substance misuse, abuse, and addiction.
  • Those experiencing or at risk of gambling addiction and problem gambling; and
  • Unemployed or underemployed.

Funding can be used for direct programme related costs, such as supplies, travel costs or equipment, salaries for programme managers and other personnel, and indirect costs up to 10% of the total budget (for community organisations only). Proposed activities should commence 1 September 2022 and be completed by 31 August 2024.

There is a two-stage application process, and applicants must first submit a letter of intent before being invited to complete a full application.

The deadline to submit a letter of intent is 31 January 2022
