Mind to distribute £7.5 million in environment grants

Mental health charity Mind is to distribute £7.5 million in grants from the Big Lottery Fund’s Changing Spaces programme to projects in England that focus on mental health and the environment.

The ‘Ecominds’ will be distributed over five years to about 125 new and existing projects. It is designed “to help people with direct experience of mental distress become involved in environmental projects that improve mental and physical health and local communities”.

To be eligible projects must have a budget of less than £250,000 and be delivered within five years.

Ecomind is at

www.mind.org.uk/ecominds

and it has a Facebook page:
