Suicide Prevention in Lincolnshire – Suicide Prevention Fund Wave 2021/22

October 2020 saw the publication of Lincolnshire County Council’s suicide prevention strategy. This has been developed on a multi-agency basis and co-produced alongside people with lived experience to reach out and save lives. The vision is to recognise and support the aim that Lincolnshire is a place where suicide is not considered as an option and people will continue to have hope.

Suicide Prevention Innovation Funding was secured from NHS England and Shine Lincolnshire launched the Wave 1 Investment Programme for Suicide Prevention across the County, with a focus on men at risk of suicide aged 25 to 59. The Investment Programme was £130,000 aimed at community organisation’s who work directly with men in supporting mental health, to apply for grants up to £10,000 to support and strengthen their organisation and their offer to men at risk of suicide.

We are now pleased to announce the arrangements for Wave 2 of the suicide prevention programme for 2021/22 with a further £130,000 investment. This programme is not age specific and will have a focus on supporting people 18+ and being innovative and creative with ideas and developments that promotes healthy lifestyles, reduces self-harm, and suicides, and raises awareness.

The application period will open on Monday 20th September for 5 weeks.
