About the partnership

With over 230 stores across the UK, Wickes is one of the largest suppliers of DIY and home improvement products.

Inspired by our vision of a world where no young person feels alone with their mental health, Wickes chose to join forces with us because they recognise the importance of mental health at every age, and especially for young people. At the start of January 2020, Wickes pledged to raise an incredible £1,000,000 over three years for YoungMinds.

I am so proud to be a part of an organisation who have chosen to support YoungMinds as their charity partner

Wickes have increased their ambition and have now decided to raise an astonishing £2million for us! The whole business has come together to achieve incredible results and the partnership has revolutionised what we once thought possible.

Kelly, from the Wickes head office says, 'I am so proud to be a part of an organisation who have chosen to support YoungMinds as their charity partner. Mental health should not be a taboo subject at any age. The emotional wellbeing of children and young people is just as important as their physical health and it's brilliant that a greater awareness of this is happening.'
