National Survivor User Network (NSUN) – COVID-19 Fund

Grants are available to user-led organisations and small unconstituted community groups in England for activities that will make a direct difference to the lives of people living with mental ill-health, trauma and distress during the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic.

Most grants will be for up to £1,000. In some instances, application for grants of up to £2,000 will be considered.

Applications can be submitted at any time and are assessed on a rolling basis.

Applications are accepted from user-led organisations or collectives or groups which may or may not be constituted. Charities are eligible if they are user-led. Examples of eligible groups include:

  • Peer support groups.
  • Mutual aid groups.
  • Community groups.
  • Disabled People’s Organisations (DPOs)
  • Other User-Led Organisations (ULOs).

An online application form and guidelines are available on the NSUN website (

After organisations have submitted the application form, they will be contacted by a grants manager via telephone/online call. Applications for:

  • Under £200 will be approved or rejected at that stage.
  • Over £200 will be taken forward after the call and considered at a panel meeting once a week.

NSUN anticipates that the timeline between application and decision will be between two and three weeks.
