Please make sure you are clear on any fundraising materials or at any events that the money raised is for Mind in West Essex. This means this money will be protected for local use.
There are 140 local Minds across England and Wales. We all have to raise our own money to run our services. We each have our own board of trustees who are responsible for how we are run. Working from Saffron Walden to Epping Forest, from Harlow to Dunmow – we cover all of West Essex.
Nationally, Mind campaigns to improve services and raises awareness. We work in partnership with them and other local Minds to make sure everyone gets the help they need across England and Wales.
From collection tins to scaling Mount Kilimanjaro every effort to raise money for Mind in West Essex is vitally important. Funds raised help us enable people to take steps to improve their emotional wellbeing. This page is dedicated to inspiring you to get involved and to recognising those who have helped.
