GloW Community Grants

What is it?

The GloW Community Grants programme invests in community based and led activities that address the things that contribute to our mental wellbeing and help improve our mental health e.g. activities that promote good mental health and wellbeing, reduce isolation, and support the prevention of suicide and self harm in those most likely to be affected.  Launched on 1 October 2020, the programme will run for three years. Each year will have a budget of £50,000, with individual funding awards of up to £5,000 per annum.

The GloW Community Grants application window has now closed.

All applications submitted prior to the end of the closing date (Sunday 15th November) will be accepted and the team are working through the applications. If you haven't received an acknowledgement by 17th November, please do get in touch with the team at Any applications received after the closing date will not be accepted.
