Heads Up Mental Health Fund- Young Camden Foundation

Young Camden Foundation (YCF) is proud to open the Heads Up Mental Health Fund for a for a third consecutive year. Heads Up Fund aims to support local community organisations based in Camden, safeguarding the mental health and wellbeing of children and young people during the pandemic and its aftermath.


YCF has partnered with John Lyon’s Charity (JLC) to ring fence £40,000 for YCF Members with an income under £250,000 that are not eligible to apply for JLC Charity normal funds or have not previously been funded by JLC Charity. This will help ensure support reaches all corners of the local children and young people’s sector responding to young people’s needs. Organisations can apply for up to £5,000.

Organisations with an income over £250,000 can apply for up to £8,000. Please note there are only £25,000 for this purpose so we envisage to make about three larger grants only.
