As part of the Digital Detox Day campaign, money raised from the limited edition IRL bath bomb will be going into a one-off fund taking applications for grants from small, grassroots groups doing great things for those struggling with mental health and wellbeing issues.
Often these small, local groups need to raise money to continue the invaluable work they do in their communities, which is what this one-off fund is all about. The little guys, doing BIG things.
Do you know any unsung heroes making an impact in your local area? Running self-help groups or saving lives through suicide prevention initiatives? Heading into schools to speak about mental health issues or offering mutual support through workshops and meet-ups?
Perhaps you run a group yourself or you know a local group raising mental health awareness through various projects or sports clubs – let them know about the Wholeness Fund.
Groups & initiatives do not have to be registered charities but will need to demonstrate a track history of their work. Grants of between £100 and £10,000 can be applied for, depending on the size of the project.
Closing date for applications is 31st December 2020. The successful entrants will be decided by a judging panel consisting of experts from the mental health field, Zoe Sugg, as well as representatives from I Am Whole and Lush.
