Mental Health and Racial Justice Synergi Small Grants Fund

17 January 2023

Synergi Small Grants Fund offers grants of between £2000 to £3000 for groups led by Black people and people of colour with lived experience of mental ill-health, distress or trauma, to take action on mental health and racial justice. 

The fund will be open for applications from the 4th until the 29th of January 2023. Grants will be awarded by the end of March 2023 and must be spent within 12 months.

Examples of the actions we hope to fund include:

  • Collective care. This might look like providing food and essentials parcels, writing to incarcerated community members, creating opportunities for people to come together and support each other using shared experiences as in peer support groups, mutual aid, creative practices like dance or singing, or covering the costs of accessing therapy or other healing practices.
  • Campaigning and change-making. This could include protest, work to create change on a local or national level, sharing information and skills such as community organising training, or creating resources for members of your community to better advocate for themselves.

All of the actions should be led by, and for the benefit of, Black people and people of colour with experience of mental ill-health, distress or trauma.
