The Prudence Trust, which was founded in 2020, has launched its very first open grants round.

More Places To Go For Help is a £1.5 million funding round to increase support for young people struggling with anxiety and/or depression. 

Charities with an established track record in delivering mental health services for young people aged 11 to 25 are invited to apply for grants of £30,000 – £150,000 a year for up to three years. Funding can be used to increase capacity or expand existing mental health services or create new services, such as community drop-in centres. Projects must be based in London or offered online.

The Prudence Trust Director, Tara Leathers said:

“We know one in eight children and young people have a clinical mental health disorder. The high numbers who need help mean there are often long waiting times and simply not enough places to go for personalised support where young people feel comfortable. We hope this funding will enable charities which are already offering excellent services to do even more, at a time where young people really need help.”

An information webinar for prospective applicants will take place on 28 February 2022. The deadline for applications is 14 March 2022 at 12pm. Further details on the criteria and how to apply can be found on the Trust’s website.
