Calderdale Suicide Prevention and Self-harm Small Grants

 

 

Small Grants Project Proposal

Calderdale Suicide Prevention Group formed in 2016 and produced a multi-agency suicide prevention plan 2017-20, following the publication of the government’s strategy, Preventing Suicide in England 2012 – A cross government outcomes strategy to save lives.

Our vision

“For Calderdale to be a place where suicides are eliminated and where people do not consider suicide as a solution to the difficulties they face; also a place that supports people at a time of personal crisis and community resilience for improved lives”

We are looking to work with voluntary and community organisations to implement innovative approaches to help us to meet our vision for Calderdale.  We are looking for projects which deliver activity against any of the following two priority areas.

  • To reduce the incidence of suicide and self-harm in young and middle-aged men
  • To reduce the incidence of suicide in people at risk of self-harm.

Organisations can access further information on Suicide in Calderdale including risk factors (adverse life events) and useful resources to support the development of a project and application in the further information sheet at the end of this article.

The desired objectives of the projects are:

  • To reduce the stigma of self-harm and suicide.
  • Build resilience to Mental Health problems in local communities.
  • Promoting Positive mental Health in local communities.
  • To increase the community-based support for those at risk of suicide, including in high risk groups.
  • To reduce the incidence of self-harm and repeated self-harm.
  • To reduce the impact of self-harm and suicide.

Proposals must demonstrate how they will support the Suicide Prevention Action Plan to meet at least one of the themes highlighted below:

 Theme 1 – Reduce the risk of suicide in high risk groups.

 Theme 2 – Tailor approaches to improve mental health in specific groups.

 Theme 3 – Reduce access to the means of suicide.

 Theme 4 – Provide better information and support to those bereaved or affected by suicide.

Theme 5 – Support the media in delivering sensitive approaches to suicide and suicidal behaviour.

Theme 6 – Support research, data collection, and monitoring.

Theme 7 – Self-harm

We have a total of £28,500 available for innovative projects to support suicide prevention and self-harm reduction in Calderdale.

Organisations must complete the attached application form and recorded proposal video maximum of 90 seconds in order to be considered for a funding allocation from the Small Grants Panel.

Proposals are to be submitted by noon Monday 04th January 2021 on the template below and will be assessed by a Small Grants Panel which includes people with lived experience. A scoring system will be applied, and applicants will receive feedback no later than two weeks following this date and where successful projects will commence as soon as possible.

Applications for a maximum of £8,000 will be considered.

Funding awards are subject to the organisation signing and returning the Terms and Conditions which will be issued on approval of the funding.
