The current funding theme for the Bupa UK Foundation is Mid-life Mental Health.
Mental health underpins health and wellbeing and impacts everyone.
For many people mid-life, from the late 20s to early 50s can be a time of increased challenges, responsibilities and pressures in their working lives, family lives and relationships.
Therefore, the Bupa UK Foundation is looking to fund projects that supports and improves people’s mental health at this critical life stage.
This is the first funding programme from the Bupa Foundation and it is to be welcomed. We are gathering more and more evidence that contact with nature and the natural environment can be beneficial to people’s health and wellbeing and I very much hope that the Bupa Foundation will consider and fund applications that involve contact with nature. However for them to do so they have got to receive some applications in the first place. So this is a call to get people thinking about submitting an application. The closing date is early September so there is not long to identify projects.
As always if you require help with an application please let me know. Either way I would be keen to hear of organisations submitting an application that uses the natural environment as a key component.
Closing date: Friday 4th September 2015
