We have selected Mind as our Large National Charity of Choice.
Mental Health is such an important part of maintaining good health and well-being, and in line with our sustainable development goals, we are keen to encourage positive mental health across our organisation, supporting colleagues when they need it most and customers through what looks to be another year of unprecedented change.
Mind provides advice and support to the 1 in 4 of us who will experience a mental health problem in our lifetime. They campaign to improve current services and help to break the stigma by promoting understanding.
You can learn more about who they are and how you can support them here.
Our Small National Charity of Choice for 2023 is Demelza.
Impacting Kent, Southeast London and East Sussex, Demelza provides clinical care, therapy specialised activities and practice support to children and young people who have serious or terminal conditions from diagnosis and day-to-day family life to time of crisis, end of life and bereavement. They also do an excellent job of supporting their friends and family during this time.
