£60,000 of grant funds available in Southwark and Merton – deadline 16 March 2020

Healthy London Partnership (HLP) has been working in collaboration with three London boroughs (Camden, Merton and Southwark) to design and test new integrated service models for mental health, musculoskeletal pain and employment support.

In London, musculoskeletal disorders and mental health problems are the most common conditions that influence people’s ability to work. The Work and Health Accelerator model aims to provide as many people as possible with access to the support they want and need to enable them to get back into work or continue working.

As part of this work and in partnership with Arts Council England and the Mayor of London, the project is now inviting proposals from arts and cultural organisations who can work with them to help improve the health and wellbeing of people with mental health problems in Southwark or Merton.

Grants of up to £10,000 per organisation are available for programmes working to a time frame of between three to six months. A total of £60,000 is available to be split equally between both boroughs.
