Meet the trusts and foundations supporting our work

Meet some of the trusts and foundations supporting our mission to make sure that all children and young people can get the mental health support they need, when they need it, no matter what. We are so grateful for the support that we receive from our generous funders.

We always carry out appropriate checks for donations from individuals and organisations, based on our values, guiding insights from our Youth Panel, Charity Commission and legal guidance, and best practise guidance from the Chartered Institute of Fundraising.

Read our full ‘Acceptance of Donations Policy’, which was developed alongside young people.
