The Time to Change grants programme are looking to fund projects that change attitudes and behaviour by engaging local communities in meaningful conversations about mental health. They particularly want to encourage applications from projects run in partnership by one or more organisations. People with experience of mental health problems should be involved in the planning and development of the projects at all levels.
25% of the fund is for projects run by and for people from Black and Minority Ethnic communities, and 20% is for projects that work with young people.
The fund is now open for the first round of applications. The deadline for applications is 2pm on 30 March. Grants will be awarded in May 2012.

They will be giving out three large grants and four flagship grants between now and 2015 – so the majority of their funding will be to support grassroots work and will be allocated as small and medium-sized grants.
