Bupa UK, which launched its Foundation earlier in the year, has announced its first funding round.
A total of £1 million will be available in grants during 2015 and the theme of the first funding programme is Mid-Life Mental Health. In particular, the Foundation is looking for applications that focus on the priority areas of prevention, early intervention and integration between physical and mental health.
The Bupa UK Foundation expects to make around 20 grants split across the following levels. Larger grants – over £50,000 for projects that have a broad reach and the potential to deliver a sustained impact; Medium grants – up to £50,000 for distinct one-off projects, which might include pilots of new models of care or initiatives designed to benefit clearly defined groups; and Small grants – up to £10,000 for smaller projects delivered at local level to directly benefit a specific group.
The funding is available to not-for profit organisations, for profit organisations and individuals. However, projects need to be for the public benefit.
The closing date for applications is the 4th September 2015.
