Geographical remit: 
National - Britain


We provide small (£100 to £3000) grants to grassroots community projects that are addressing issues including mental health, self esteem, confidence and bullying. We aim to direct resources to small projects which may find it difficult to apply for or obtain funding from other sources but which we believe are key to directing mental health support where it is needed. We aim to improve the nations mental health via this community based approach.


We have a range of ways that we raise funds. Due to the origins of the 401 Foundation being based on Ben Smiths running challenge of 401 marathons in 401 days we do have an emphasis on physical events for our fundraising - runs, cycle rides, walks etc. We also raise funds from corporate sponsors and events.
