We’ve always been big advocates of giving back to our community and supporting important causes. This year we decided to select one charity of the year, a charity which we will be dedicated to supporting throughout the whole of 2021.
We are so pleased to announce that our chosen Charity of the Year 2021 is Nottinghamshire Mind Mental Health Charity.
Nottinghamshire Mind provides advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem in our local community, campaigning to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding.
“One in four people will experience a mental health problem in any given year” - Mind.
Mental health is always an important subject to raise awareness of, but it feels particularly pertinent right now. With the struggles wrought by the pandemic, mental health issues have risen; new problems developed, and; existing problems worsened. So, it is more crucial than ever that we shine a light on it as much as possible.
“The devastating loss of life, the impact of lockdown and loneliness, and the inevitable recession that lies ahead will affect all of us.” - Mind.
Luckily, at We Are Fulilment, our directors are extremely devoted to the wellbeing of the team, both at work and at home. In the past year, we’ve implemented many initiatives to improve our employees’ support systems, such as the employment of our Head of People, Wellness Wednesday sessions, regular catch ups and team challenges to help emulate togetherness during the various periods of lockdown.
All of these efforts, in addition to our company principles, mirror Nottinghamshire Mind’s purpose, making them the perfect choice for our Charity of the Year 2021.
We have some really exciting fundraising ideas in the pipeline. Stay tuned to find out what we get up to and how you can help us to help Mind 💙
