MoMark Mental Health Community Fund

MoMark has launched its annual community fund for 2023 and is offering funding from £5,000 to £20,000 to a small number of projects each year which support positive changes to mental health & well-being in Wandsworth. Our fund is now seeking applications.

We strive to fund as many projects as possible. However demands always outstrip the available funding. In some cases, some projects may be placed on a reserve list (in case additional funding becomes available) to transferred to the next funding round.

We will accept applications from:

  • Voluntary or community organisations
  • Registered charities

Frequently Asked Questions

How many grants will you provide?

This will depend on the number of project applications and the levels of funding requested. In considering applications we will seek to maximise the reach and impact of the fund overall. But we have limited funds and may not be able to award every eligible project.

Will you provide feedback if my application is unsuccessful?

Whilst we will aim to provide feedback this may not be possible if there are a substantial number of applications. We will however keep this under review.

Can I appeal if my application is unsuccessful?

Unfortunately, our decision is final.

Can I reapply if my application is unsuccessful?

Unsuccessful bids in the first round may reapply in the second round but will need to submit a new application.

Who is on the MoMark panel?

A panel will be convened to review applications. The panel will include MoMark board members. The MoMark board has individuals from a variety of backgrounds, ages, sexual orientations, religions, ethnicities and experiences of mental health.

How will the grant be paid?

We will normally pay the grant in three instalments. These will be paid by bank transfer. We do however recognise that some project may require a greater amount of up-front funding which should be specified, and justified within the application.
