Charity of the Year
As the Bath Building Society Charity of the Year, Bath Mind will benefit from fundraising at many of the local community events we support including the annual Rotary Carol Concert as well as proceeds from staff fundraising events. We also pledge to donate 50 pence for every vote received at the AGM 2023.
Bath Mind – Charity of the Year 2023.
Bath Mind is a local and independently run mental health charity which supports the mental health and wellbeing of people across Bath & North East Somerset.
Established in 1998 by a group of local people, while the charity is affiliated to the national Mind charity, they run entirely independently and receive no direct funding from Mind. Instead, Bath Mind relies heavily on local fundraising to help support people in need throughout our community.
Bath Mind aims to promote and nurture the mental health of local residents through the provision of information, activities, advice and support. Services include a crisis telephone support line, mental health support in local A&E departments, community services, counselling, wellbeing groups, supported living and mental health training in the workplace and educational establishments.
Kevin Gray, CEO of Bath Building Society, said: “This year we included our Members in the voting process and we are delighted with the results. Mental health is a very important topic and by supporting the work of Bath Mind in the local community we hope to raise awareness of the community services they offer and the message ‘it’s ok not to be ok’.”
