Enter our Twelve Days of Christmas Competition to raise money for Young Minds!
Posted on 01 December 2017
Throughout December, we will be running twelve guess the riddle competitions and for every person who enters, we will donate £1 to Young Minds.
Young Minds is the UK’s leading charity committed to improving the emotional wellbeing and mental health of children and young people. They exist so that young people have the strongest possible voice in improving their mental health. They strive to make sure everything, from Government policy to practice in schools and services, is driven by young people’s experiences and aspirations.
They also support parents to help their children through difficult times, equip professionals to provide the best possible support to the young people that they work with, and empower young people to change their world.
£15 supports one volunteer a day on our Parents Helpline. Given that last year, we helped over 12,500 families in crisis and the demand for the Parents Helpline is increasing dramatically, it is very important that our volunteers are fully supported.
£25 can help a distressed parent who rings our Parents Helpline, allowing them to receive vital support, including information and advice to any worries about the emotional problems, behaviour or mental health of their child or a young person.
£35 will provide a parent with a 50 minute telephone call with a mental health professional. Given that access to professional help can take months, or even years, this fast and efficient service is vital.
