Thrive LDN’s new Right to Thrive grants scheme has awarded more than £170,000 to 24 community and grassroots projects across London to help support the mental health and wellbeing of those who are experiencing higher levels of unfair treatment and discrimination. Since the Pandemic, 22 of the projects were able to be delivered.

The projects range from supporting mental health outcomes for refugees, asylum seekers and other vulnerable migrants, providing a safe space for Black, Asian and minority ethnic women, as well as establishing a community choir, creative activities, community rugby for young black men, and expanding spaces for LGBT Southeast Asians. All projects aim to improve the wellbeing of people from intersectional and marginalised communities in London.

The Right to Thrive grants scheme from Thrive LDN is making additional support available to communities and groups who are particularly vulnerable to experiencing poor mental health.
