MindOut has been successful in its application for a grant to enhance its sustainability. The Cabinet Office and Big Lottery Fund aim to support small to medium sized voluntary sector organisations to develop and change according to their need.
MindOut was shortlisted alongside several other local organisations and several other LGBT organisations and will be working in partnership with both over the next 12 months.
The grant will enable MindOut to develop much needed new income streams with the aim of reducing reliance on grants and contracts, develop its marketing and how it demonstrates its impact, and to strengthen its governance and management.
Helen Jones, MindOut CEO said:
‘We are delighted to have been successful and secured this much needed grant. This is a huge boost for LGBTQ mental health and for the LGBTQ voluntary sector in general’.
