Mind's Crafternoon Facebook group house rules

Thank you so much for deciding to take part in Crafternoon! 

The Crafternoon Facebook group is a space to share photos, ideas, and experiences of holding a Crafternoon to raise money for Mind. It's a supportive place to find inspiration and connect with others who are keen to have fun, get crafty and make sure everyone with a mental health problem gets the support and respect that's deserved. 

By joining the group, or remaining a group member, you’re deemed to be in agreement with our house rules. If you've got any questions or comments, please do drop us an email at [email protected] 

As a member of the Crafternoon Facebook group, I will:

  • Email specific queries for the Crafternoon Team to [email protected] Mind staff won’t be able to respond to direct questions about your fundraising or requests for materials in the group or via private Facebook messages. 
  • Treat others the way I would like to be treated 
  • Give as well as ask – we all need a helping hand from time to time, so I'll help and support others when I can. 
  • Let the Mind team know if I have seen something in the group that worries me by emailing [email protected]
  • Reach out for help outside this group if I need it e.g. via the 'I need urgent help' section at mind.org.uk

As a member of a Mind Fundraising group I won’t

  • Make personal attacks or harass other members 
  • Share personal contact details on the group pages 
  • Swear or use offensive language 
  • Post content which might not be safe for other members e.g. details of self-harm or suicidal plans 
  • Promote other business or charities, including fundraising events in support of other charities
  • Give “expert” advice regarding mental health problems. There is rarely an answer to one problem and it is best to refer a member who is seeking advice to the Mind Infoline on 0300 123 3393, or the Mind website at mind.org.uk.

The Crafternoon team will

  • Post content relevant to your Crafternoon planning and fundraising
  • Respond to any upsetting or unsafe content posts efficiently 
  • Listen to concerns that you may have about the group and where appropriate take further action, such as ask an individual to take down a post that may be offensive or unsafe 
  • Reserve the right to block members who break the house rules

The Crafternoon team won’t

  • Monitor the group outside the hours of 9.00 -17:00 on a week day, or at all at the weekends and public holidays 
  • Respond to any specific queries posted in the group, or sent in a private message  – you will need to email [email protected] in these instances
  • Be able to fix any technical difficulties with the group. This will be the responsibility of Facebook

Group purpose

This group is intended as a space for Mind supporters to share their experiences about fundraising for Mind including ideas for fundraising, craft ideas and event planning. 

It's great to share experiences and ideas, but this space isn't designed to facilitate ongoing mental health support.

We know that online community support can be really valuable and Mind has another online community called Elefriends. It's a space for members to be open about their mental health and they're all very supportive of each other. It's also moderated around the clock.

This group has been set up as a ‘Closed Group’ which is defined within Facebook guidelines as ‘Closed Group – anyone can find the group and see who’s in it. Only members can see posts.’ Members can request to join the group; Mind will accept requests and reserve the right to refuse entry into the group; and only members are then able to view posts and add comments.

This group has over 1,500 members and therefore it may be you know other members from your own personal and/or professional networks and you should be aware that they will be able to view anything you choose to share here.

Group administration

Mind are responsible for administration of this group and we will do everything we can to ensure the safety of each member within the limits of our monitoring periods.

Mind retain the right to close this group where content within the group continually goes beyond the original purpose or Mind is unable to continue to provide resources to moderate the group.
