79 community organisations across England to receive a share of the Suicide Prevention VCSE Fund

The Department of Health and Social Care have just announced that 79 organisations, including a suicide prevention helpline, will receive funding through the Suicide Prevention VCSE Grant Fund.

The funding will expand access to support services covering every region in the country, including the areas with the highest rates of suicide.

Both national charities and small community-led charities, which provide tailored support for local areas, will receive new funding to support people with their mental health.

Many charities will deliver services through partnerships and alliances, to help ensure joined-up support for individuals seeking help.

All grants awarded are currently provisional and subject to finalisation of grant agreements. Funds will begin being distributed from April.

The full list of shortlisted grant recipients, whose provisional award ties in to the government’ suicide prevention strategy for England: 2023 to 2028, is:
