Mental Health Funding for Global Majority-Led Arts Organisations

Posted in Funding

Baring Foundation are delighted to announce a new open round for Global Majority-led arts organisations who would like to develop their offer of creative opportunities to people living with mental health problems.

To define mental health problems, Baring Foundation use NHS categorizations, that is, Common Mental Disorders such as anxiety, depression and OCD, psychoses including Bipolar Spectrum Disorder, and addictions. This does not include neurological conditions such as dementia. Baring Foundation do not fund Creative Arts Therapies.

Grants of £20k-£60k available for projects taking place over a minimum of two years.

To be eligible, you should be:

  • an established arts organisation of any kind (including CICs), operating in the UK.
  • led by global majority communities in terms of both staff and governance. Please see our Application guidance for definitions.
  • established for at least two years, with audited accounts or management accounts for at least that length of time.

Projects can include partnerships with other arts and mental health organisations or mental health groups or organisations.

Baring Foundation hope this fund will contribute towards addressing the under-representation of artists from ethnically diverse backgrounds working in arts and mental health.

Application deadline: 12 pm 26th July
