CHOOSE THE CHARLIE WATKINS FOUNDATION TO BE YOUR CHARITY OF THE YEAR

1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem in their life time

While there are many people that suffer with mental health problems, it is still a taboo when it comes to talking about it

and seeking help. 


The Charlie Watkins Foundation aims to raise funds for services that provide assistance to young people suffering from

mental health problems. 

Every year in the workplace, around 70 million days are lost in absence due to mental illnesses

This year, show your support for not only your employees, but to everyone suffering with a mental illness. 


Choosing us to be your charity of the year is a great way to show you care and help a worthwhile cause at the same time. 

 

HOW HAVE WE USED DONATIONS SO FAR?

The Charlie Watkins Foundation have been incredibly fortunate to receive a huge volume of donations and individuals willing to volunteer.

Our partnership with North Essex MIND to run the ‘Chat with Charlie’ initiative, an anonymous online chatroom, achieved some great results and gave many young people at the University of Essex the mechanism through which they could reach out for support if they were struggling.  This project has now ended, but we will be building on its success in our future plans for the new year.

We are delighted that our relationship with Essex Community Foundation (ECF) continues to grow as they expertly manage part of the Foundation on our behalf.  Through ECF we are pleased to be supporting a new initiative for this year - an 18-month project run by the Colchester and Tendring Youth Enquiry Service (YES).
