Virgin Money Giving is the not-for-profit online fundraising arm of Virgin Money. It was set up to ensure as much money as possible makes its way from fundraisers to the causes where it's needed most - to charities just like Mind.
Since launching in 2009, over 14,000 charities have registered and over £685 million has been raised through Virgin Money Giving.
We're proud to support the Mind Media Awards, celebrating those that challenge the status quo and bring mental health problems out into the open.
We know a great deal has already been achieved, but there's still work to do to ensure the misconceptions and stigma surrounding mental health are changed for the better.
As Mind's preferred online fundraising partner, Virgin Money Giving has helped raise nearly £12 million over the last nine years, enabling Mind to continue the great work they do supporting mental wellbeing across the UK.

Counselling Directory is run by Memiah, a company with heart. We exist to support others, to continually challenge stigma around mental health and mental illness, and to promote wellbeing. We've been helping connect people with the help they need since 2005, when Counselling Directory was first created by sisters Aimi and Emma.
Thirteen years on, Counselling Directory now lists over 15,000 professional counsellors nationwide, provides contacts and information for charitable groups and information about mental health and associated therapeutic practises. In addition to the Counselling Directory, Memiah has developed directories for life coaching, hypnotherapy, nutrition and therapy.
Our official media partner
In March 2017, Memiah launched Happiful Magazine – the only magazine devoted to discussions around mental health and wellbeing. Happiful is available in print and also as a free e-magazine, to ensure there are no economic boundaries to accessing the information, help and true stories within its pages.
Through their directories and Happiful, Memiah continue our mission to create to a safe, supportive and inclusive community while signposting the mental health and wellbeing resources available for everyone.
