North Antrim Community is inviting community and voluntary sector organisations to apply for non-recurring awards to address the themes of suicide prevention, self-harm, mental health and emotional wellbeing.

Grants of £1,000 per project are available, funded by the PHA. Applications may be considered for strategic projects over the £1,000 limit, dependent on evidence of need and availability of resources.

Applications will be assessed on the potential to improve health and wellbeing and on the ability to complete the work by the end of February 2016, including evaluation, by mid-March 2016.

The scheme opens for applications on Tuesday March 31 and closes on Tuesday May 5.

Applications should promote protective factors and build resilience, including early intervention, emotional wellbeing awareness work, increasing the capacity for self-help and measures to improve quality of life.
