Stroud Resourcing Announces our Charity Partner 2021

Each year the Stroud Resourcing team get together to decide on a charity to support with our fundraising activities over the next 12 months. After a challenging year for everybody, we are pleased to announce that we will be doing all we can to support the wonderful work of Mind, the mental health charity, this year!

Mental health has never been highlighted more than in the last 12 months, and we’re glad this issue is getting more attention. 74% of adults have admitted that they felt so stressed during 2020 they were unable to cope, and on average 18 people commit suicide every day – it’s the single biggest killer of men under the age of 45 in this country, which is horrifying. What’s more, these problems are much more likely to affect those already most vulnerable in our society: ethnic minority groups, young people, and those in poverty. It’s for these reasons we’ve decided to support the important work Mind do.

Since forming over 70 years ago, Mind have worked tirelessly to bring mental health into the spotlight, not only by providing comprehensive information surrounding mental health conditions and services that people can access but by also having their own helpline to provide advice or listen to people who need to talk through their struggles. They also campaign to improve mental health services and promote widespread understanding of what having a mental illness means, aiming to reduce stigma and make it easier for people to access treatments.

We’re looking forward to supporting Mind this year, and we’re currently in the process of reviewing our own practices to ensure that workplace wellbeing is always at the forefront of what we do.
