Charity of the Year
Among the ways that people can support our work is through Charity of the Year schemes. Bristol Mind has been very fortunate to have been chosen by a number of local organisations as Charity of the Year over the last two years. These include Sustain, Bristol Hotel, Rolls Royce Apprentices Association and the Institute of Physics. We have worked with the organisations to educate staff around workplace wellbeing and the funds they have raised for us have been enormously beneficial, helping us to set up a low cost counselling service among other things.
Showing your customers that you support a charity year round can help improve your corporate image and increase your brand awareness. Holding regular fundraising events, encouraging payroll giving, offering pro-bono support and running cause-related marketing campaigns throughout the year can also boost staff morale, making your workforce more productive.
Year long support can help Bristol Mind provide more services and support to people experiencing a mental health problem and can also help us to raise mental health awareness through your customer base.
