Trusts and Foundations 

How Trusts and Foundations support our work

We want to make sure that everyone experiencing a mental health problem gets both support and respect. But we can only do this with the support of funders who share our goals.

Core funding from Trusts and Foundations helps us run our most important services such as:

Unrestricted funding (donations that we can use for any purpose) is essential. It gives us the flexibility to direct funding to where it’s needed most and adapt our work quickly and responsively.

It also helps us support our network of over 100 local Minds, who provide high quality community services to over 425,000 people every year.

Thanks to funding from Trusts and Foundations, we’ve also been able to launch much-needed programmes such as:

  • our Blue Light Programme, which provides mental health support for emergency service staff
  • our Whole School Approach, which gives young people the skills they need to be resilient for life
  • our Side by Side: Peer Support in your Community programme. This programme coached 621 local peer support leaders to improve mental health peer support, helping over 6,000 people.

“If it wasn’t for Mind I’d be lost, or I wouldn’t be alive to be completely honest with you.”

- Nadine, Mind service user

What Trusts and Foundations can expect when partnering with us

We value and support every Trust and Foundation we work with.

To us, a partnership is more than financial support. It’s about having the same values, mission and principles. It’s about shared learning, respect and support.

If you're a Trust or Foundation working with us, you can expect the following:

We'll report back to you on the impact of your donation

All our projects and programmes are monitored and evaluated. This way you’ll know how your funding is making a difference. We’ll also keep you up to date on our latest research, and publications like Coronavirus: The consequences for mental health.

We'll help you tell others about the work we do together

This might include giving you key messaging and mental health stats, quotes for a press release, or social media graphics.

We'll help you raise awareness and combat stigma

This might include giving you materials to share with your staff on World Mental Health Day or Time to Talk Day. Or sharing our workplace wellbeing resources to help improve mental health in your organisation. 

We’ll invite you to exclusive stewardship events

At these events you’ll learn more about our work and hear directly from the people we support. Take a look at our Mind’s young trailblazers in conversation with Fiona Bruce event.

We'll value your expertise and insights

We may invite you to roundtables to shape our work and share insights with others in the sector.

Our Partners

Every Trust and Foundation we work with – big or small – helps us fight for better mental health. We're so grateful for their support and we simply could not do what we do without them.
