The St Monica Trust has launched its Mental Health and Older People Fund 2021 and is looking to fund at least five organisations for up to £45,000 over a period of 18 months - enough time to establish a project with a target of 12 months and upwards for actual delivery time.

The aim is to fund projects that reach the most vulnerable older people living in Bristol, Bath & North East Somerset, South Gloucestershire and North Somerset.

They are looking for projects that address inequalities, support and empower older people to understand their mental health issues and to improve their overall quality of life.

Priority will be given to bids that:

  • Empower older people.
  • Have a strong input from older people into the shaping of the project.
  • Engage with other services and collaborative models such as the Bristol Support Hub or similar collective approaches.
  • Connect with existing health provision.
  • Address inequality and/or promote diversity through its delivery.
  • Have considered sustainability and longevity of the project.
