Published: March 27, 2024


VSGWL is delighted to share that further investment from Scottish Government will enable a fourth year of funding from the West Lothian Communities Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund to be distributed to the third sector across West Lothian, to support good mental health and wellbeing for those most impacted by the pandemic.

Projects to support mental health and address social isolation and loneliness in adults will share a further £15 million this year.

Activities will target older people, areas of economic deprivation, people with long term health conditions or disability and LGBTI communities. The Fund has also had a particular focus on responding to the cost of living crisis, which remains a priority this year.

Improved mental health and wellbeing support is one of the commitments in the Scottish Government’s Policy Prospectus, which outlines firm actions to be achieved by 2026.

Further news of the allocation to West Lothian will be confirmed soonest.
