Baring Foundation launches first funding round to support arts and mental health organisations

Baring Foundation has announced the first call for applications in a new Arts programme supporting Arts and Mental Health.

The funding offers modest, unrestricted grants to established organisations in the UK that focus solely on offering creative opportunities to people of any age living with mental health problems using the skills of professionally trained artists.

This approach has been chosen to respond in the best way we can to the pressures the sector is undergoing due to the COVID-19 crisis.

This is the first funding call in what will be a long-term commitment to funding arts and mental health. The funding will expand beyond this starting place to include other organisations who are doing valuable work which this first round of funding will not be able to support.
