Veterans' mental health - Strategic Pathways Programme

The Strategic Pathways Programme has been launched and it is open for Expressions of Interest. This is part of the Veterans Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund.

The programme will fund a small number of national organisations who will provide support and mentoring to organisations delivering activities and opportunities under the Positive Pathways Programme

Strategic Pathway Providers therefore need to be

* Large organisations experienced in running projects to support veterans with poor mental health
* Experienced in being part of, and developing cross sector pathways of care
* Able to work nationally
* Able to encourage, share learning and good practice; and act as a mentor
* Be able to help smaller organisations insert their activities into wider recovery pathways

The Strategic Pathways Programme will only award grants to large organisations that want to help smaller organisations connect their work to support better recovery pathways for veterans in the longer term. Expressions of Interest need to be received by 1st February 2019. For organisations seeking funding to offer activities for veterans; the Positive Pathways Programme will open for applications in May 2019. You can take part in the consultation to help shape this programme until 15th March 2019.
