Support us as a business

We believe businesses of all kinds have a role to play in bringing equality for mental health within reach, and helping people receive the best support wherever they work, live and learn, whenever they need it, and without shame.

We’re looking for our next corporate sponsor to help us continue our groundbreaking research and achieve the ultimate goal of equality for anyone who has a mental health problem.

We want to work with ambitious companies who are committed to improving wellbeing in the workforce and in the wider world.

Our unique approach aims to give back to our corporate sponsors. We want to address the issues that are important to you – issues where together we can make a real difference that fundraisers can proudly put their names to.

Let’s collaborate!

We want to get to know your people, celebrate their successes and inspire them to champion mental health and wellbeing. As part of our collaborative approach we could:

  • Coproduce a bespoke project idea exploring the issues in mental health that your company and colleagues care about – setting a target to fund research for a lasting legacy beyond the lifetime of the partnership
  • Guide your workplace strategies, share advice on best practice, and make connections to our wide network of local and national influencers
  • Arrange for emotive and thought-provoking speakers to attend events and fundraisers
  • Help you find great ways to engage your clients and employees so you can have fun while you fundraise – for example, you could host a quiz night, take on a team challenge, run a charity sports tournament, climb a mountain…

In 2017/18 we were named Charity of the Year by leading UK recruitment agency Investigo. A fantastic year of fundraising and focus on wellbeing raised over £50,000 to help us produce a piece of original research on suicide prevention. This was an issue close to the hearts of the staff at Investigo and we were delighted to take it forward together.

We have been on a really special journey with Centre for Mental Health. We were inspired by their life-changing research, which we can see positively impacts thousands of lives. Each year our goal is to find a charity where we can really make a difference. This year we funded a research project to investigate why so many people who die from suicide are not receiving mental health support and what more can be done across the UK to prevent this. This journey has been particularly interesting and was a new concept for us as a business, to support a research-focused charity fighting the root cause of an issue. The charity engagement across the business has been the highest we have ever seen because our employees whole-heartedly got behind the concept.
