Do you have an idea to improve mental health and wellbeing at a community level in London?
Thrive LDN has launched a grant scheme designed to support Londoners who may experience higher levels of unfair treatment or discrimination. The grants are part of the Mayor of London’s commitment to offering all Londoners an equal opportunity to good mental health and well being.
Grants will range from £500 to £10,000 and fund grassroots projects, run by organisations or individuals, that work with intersectional or marginalised communities in London.
Marginalised communities are defined as people who, for various reasons, are denied involvement in mainstream economic, political, cultural and social activities.
Intersectional communities are people who are often disadvantaged (or privileged) by multiple backgrounds and/or identities, for example race, age, class, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion and other identity markers. Inersectional communities who are especially vulnerable to be the subject of prejudice in London are: Black LGBTQ+, Asian LGBTQ+, the Latin community, Gypsy, Roma and Traveller community, refugees and asylum seekers, and transgender people.
