Our charity partnership

One in four people experience a mental health problem in any one year. That’s someone in every family, workplace and friendship circle. In the UK it's around 14 million people.

That's why we are working in partnership with Mind, the Scottish Association for Mental Health (SAMH) and Inspire to bring communities together to improve mental wellbeing.

More about the partnership

We aim to raise £6m through the partnership by engaging colleagues, members and customers in a range of national and local fundraising.

The amounts raised will enable the charities to deliver innovative new services in communities across the UK to ensure people receive the support they need.

You can support by making a donation to your local community on our fundraising page*.
