The Baring Foundation have announced a new open round of funding 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 the 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. They 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.

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

Deadline for applications is 12pm midday on 26th July 2022.

Final decisions on grants to be awarded will be made by trustees and you will be informed by the end of October.
