How to apply for the Cameron Grant Memorial Trust grant

The Cameron Grant Memorial Trust (CGMT) was founded to raise awareness of mental health and the risk of suicide in young people. It was set up in memory of Cameron Grant, who took his own life after suffering from a long history of depression. By funding initiatives that help to bring mental health into the conversation, the charity hopes to stop this from happening to anyone else.

Is my school eligible?

The full eligibility criteria can be easily found on the CGMT’s website. However, it’s worth noting that this grant is for project-based activities that demonstrate clear innovation in discussing or improving mental health. This grant does not fund on-going operational expenses or salaries.

What kind of projects do they fund?

Innovation is at the heart of CGMT’s grants, so if you’re looking into new ways to discuss or support mental health for young people, you’re in the right place. This could include:

  • Trialling a new service
  • Testing a new technology
  • Putting on a performance
  • Funding research that supports the treatment of mental health

Applications should focus on one of the below areas:

  • Destigmatising mental health
  • Reducing barriers to mental health care
  • Improving mental wellbeing

How do I apply?

You can apply for a grant by sending an email with a brief outline of your idea and the amount you are requesting to: innovate@camgrant.org.uk

CGMT will review your request within two weeks and, if successful, you will be invited to complete a formal application via a Google form—this form is expected to take 20 to 30 minutes to complete.

What’s the deadline?

2021 applications were accepted from 11th January until 9th April 2021. Therefore, 2022 applications are likely to open in early 2022.

How much funding is possible?

CGMT provides grants of between £100 and £2,500.
