The mission of the UCB Community Health Fund is to address health disparities among vulnerable populations, starting by contributing to understand and reduce the medium- and long-term impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on their physical and mental health, and social well-being. More specifically, the Fund wants to support vulnerable people, including racial and ethnic minorities, children, young people, older people, socio-economically disadvantaged persons, un(der)insured or those with certain medical conditions unrelated to therapeutic areas nor assets of UCB, in the communities where UCB is active.
This new call for projects aims at providing support to young people facing mental health challenges. The fund is committed to creating positive changes in communities and will offer grants to non-profit and non-governmental organizations worldwide dedicated to improving the physical, social, and psychological well-being of young people aged 15 to 24 with mental disorders. Amidst the global challenges of climate change, racism, inequality, and conflict, young people are increasingly vulnerable to mental health problems and heightened insecurity.
The Call for Projects is intended for organizations only (local, national or international organizations applying for support of local initiatives), i.e. individuals cannot apply for funding. There are no specific requirements in terms of the type of organizations that qualify for funding. The selection committee is keen to receive applications from organizations that explicitly include young people in the design and implementation of programs and services (i.e. co-creation).
Actions must take place in countries where UCB is active.
Organizations can request grants between €30,000 ($36,000) and €50,000 ($60,000).
The call for projects is accepting submissions from 2 May – 3 July 2023.
