Creative Grants

Would you like to win £1000 for a creative project with an LYPFT (Leeds & York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust) service?

Each year Arts & Minds offer the opportunity for LYPFT services to win up to £1000 each for a participatory project. Projects need to involve patients / service users in the planning so it meets their needs and interests, and can be in any medium: photography, music, crafts, creative writing etc. Your LYPFT service must also contribute at least £100 towards the project to be eligible for a grant. LYPFT services can apply for one Creative Grant each year.

We are now accepting Grant Applications for the 2024/25 grants programme. If you are interested in applying for a Creative Grant, please read the Grant Guidance first to check if your service is eligible to apply for a grant and what the money can be used for.
