Mental health funding competition webinar

This webinar provided information about how to apply for the new mental health funding competition run by the Office for Students, with funding from the Department of Health and Social Care.

The OfS mental health funding competition focuses on using innovation and intersectional approaches to target mental health support for students.

This funding competition was originally launched in March 2020 but was paused due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The competition was re-opened on 1 October 2020 with a new submission deadline of 7 December 2020. 

This webinar provided more information about the funding competition, and covered the following topics:

  • eligibility criteria
  • the bid process
  • the assessment process
  • project and programme level evaluation.

There was also a question and answer session.

During the webinar we shared the names of providers who are happy to be contacted by those seeking potential partners to join their bid.
