The Firebird Fund, managed by Essex Community Foundation, supports adults with mental health issues in Southend and South East Essex. The fund supports local voluntary and community organisations, (applying via the organisational application process on ECF’s website ) however, the panel has a preference to receive requests from individuals for respite breaks, training and experiences they would struggle to access without financial support.
Applications are now being accepted until 16th October for November decisions. Please call Jill Curd on 01245 356018 to discuss how an individual may apply. Individuals however must be being supported by a recognised metal health provider to apply.
