Keeping the physical distancing requirements of COVID-19 in mind, we welcome any digitally-led or otherwise innovative projects that help to bring people together and end mental distress stigma and discrimination in new ways. We’re looking out for your online campaigns and huis, videos, audio projects and other fresh ideas you have to Tū Ake, Tū Māiā and make a real difference!
Want to make change in your community?
Our Pūtea Hapori or Community Grants support a social movement of Kiwis who actively challenge mental distress discrimination.
The Community Grants enable this by funding both creative and community projects that build a movement to make Aotearoa a kinder, fairer and more inclusive place for people who live with mental distress or illness.
Our winning projects – which are each awarded up to $10,000 in funding – challenge negative stereotypes around mental distress and help our communities, workplaces, whānau, iwi and hapū become more accepting and less judgmental. A total funding pool of $90,000 is available.
This year, the Grants will close on Friday, 22 May at 5pm.
Tū Ake, Tū Māia and stand up for those of us with mental distress by applying for a 2020 Pūtea Hapori or Community Grant today!
