To have a greater impact across Great Britain we work with partners to act on the causes of health inequalities.

Featured campaign

Supporting the mental health of grassroots VCS workers

Our report, “We were absolutely invisible: the impact of Covid-19 on the mental health of grassroots voluntary and community sector workers” shows that demand for mental health support from grassroots charities has soared in the last two years and that those charities’ own workers are on the brink of burnout. The pressure felt by these grassroots charities means there is a risk that a key part of the community mental health support system could collapse. We believe a co-ordinated strategy for voluntary and community sector (VCS) workers is needed urgently and is crucial to upholding this system. We are inviting other funders to come together to talk about a possible collaboration to consider our collective responsibility to this issue. Read more
