Sussex Staff in Mind are working in partnership with Heads On. Heads On is Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust's charity who help people with mental health problems to feel supported, to stay active and to be more involved in their communities.
Sussex Staff in Mind are able to offer grants for members of staff facing financial difficulties, and our grants provide emergency hardship support with unexpected expenditures which would or have impacted on mental health and wellbeing. Examples of eligible items include replacement of white goods, emergency household repairs, and technology to prevent loneliness and isolation etc. Grants cannot replace statutory support or benefits, or cover basic necessities or regular bills. You cannot use the grant to purchase cigarettes, vaping devices or alcohol, or to pay off credit card interest.

Please note that many stores selling white goods and laptops offer an NHS discount. Please consider this when making your hardship fund application by including the subsidised price.
