Benefact Trust – Brighter Lives Mental Health Programme

This fund aims to support Christian organisations in responding to the long-term impact of COVID-19 on people’s mental health and wellbeing, through greater training, resources, and support.  

The Trust does not normally fund the total cost of a project. 

Applicants should have a minimum of 30% of the total project costs secured before they apply. 

Funding can be used to cover: 

  • Capital costs, such as the adaption of buildings and the purchase of equipment that is necessary and justified primarily to deliver any proposed activities. 
  • Revenue costs, such as staff costs (salary costs, hiring costs, and/or extending contracted hours of existing staff), training costs, volunteer expenses, the development of resources and training materials/programmes, and delivery of training. Costs for up to one year from the start date of the proposed project are eligible.
