New Time to Change Champions Fund available for mental health activities in Bristol
The Community Access Support Service is part of
several organisations leading on a new fund to tackle mental health
stigma in Bristol. The fund, which is available to individuals and
groups city-wide, allows people to claim up to £500 towards running
a mental health-related activity or event.
The premise of the fund is to gather people with lived
experience of mental health issues to share knowledge with others
who may have a limited understanding. Being able to share
information through collaborative activities and events can lead to
shifts in perception as people begin to reassess their attitudes
towards mental health.
Activities funded through previous funds include art
exhibitions, pop-up shops and music events. Time to Change is also
offering free training to anyone wishing to apply for the fund.
Applications for the fund are currently being processed through
Wellspring Healthy Living Centre and details
can be found on their website. Applicants must sign up as Time to Change Champions before applying for
the fund and all activities must take place before the end of
