In Memory of Molly Hurst

In Memory of Molly Hurst: The Young People’s Mental Health & Wellbeing Fund

The Young People’s Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund in memory of Molly Hurst is for projects which support 10 -26 year olds with their mental health and wellbeing.


  • This programme aims to support young people from South Yorkshire with their mental health
  • Priority will be given to small, locally based groups or organisations in South Yorkshire that have a clear understanding of the needs of young people.
  • The funding will award grants of between £1,000 and £5,000


  • You must be a not-for-profit voluntary and/or community groups (you don’t need to be a registered charity but your activities must be considered to be charitable).
  • You must have a governing document (constitution/ set of rules) that show how your group is managed.
  • You must have a management committee/ governing body with at least 3 independent and unrelated members.
  • You must have a bank or building society account in the name of your group, with a minimum of 2 unrelated cheque signatories (or are willing to open a seperate account if your application is successful.)
  • We don’t usually fund organisations which pay their trustees / directors
  • We will only fund local offices of a national organisation if you have your own management committee, governing documents and bank account
  • We don’t fund retrospective costs
  • We do not fund statutory organisations including schools, but some of our funds have exceptions
  • We do not fund buses, mini buses or other community transport schemes (this does not refer to transport costs forming part of a project)
  • Religious and political organisations can be funded if the funding is not promoting that religion/political ideal and only if their work is not exclusive to people of their group

How do I apply?

Part B will be attached to your registration email, along with a link to your online grant application form.

  • The next deadline for applications is 28th October 2019 and decisions will be made in December 2019.
