There are many ways in which you can get involved with our work and our charity, your help & support goes a long way in helping people in your local area who are experiencing mental health problems. Take a look below to see the different ways in which you can help us & them.
Fundraise for us
Whilst we are affiliated with National Mind, we in fact don’t receive any regular funding from them and instead rely on the generosity of individuals and businesses to raise money for us to help keep our services going in the local area. Take a look at our fundraising page https://www.basmind.org/fundraising/ to find out more about how you can help raise funds for our services.
If you want to raise some money or donate to support the work we do in the local area, please make sure you are clear on any fundraising or cheques that the money is for Basildon Mind as this means we can use this money locally.
As a charity, we rely heavily on volunteers, their contribution makes a real difference to the services we offer, they raise awareness, fundraise and help deliver our services so if you have some spare time and would like to help out, please contact us firstname.lastname@example.org
“Volunteers don’t get paid, not because they’re worthless, but because they’re priceless.” – Sherry Anderson
“At the end of the day it’s not about what you have or even what you’ve accomplished… it’s about who you’ve lifted up, who you’ve made better. It’s about what you’ve given back.” – Denzel Washington
Flexible volunteering opportunities
We recognise the value that local people can play in supporting people from their own community, and the benefits volunteering can have for both volunteer & service user. We would love to hear from all members of the community. So, if you have a passion for mental health, want to connect with the community, or simply gain valuable experience; why not give us a call or email us
Attend our Events
We have fantastic supporters who organise events in aid of our charity, so if you’d like to support them please visit our News page https://www.basmind.org/news/ to find upcoming events.
To make a one-off or regular donation, or to pay in donations raised from a fundraising event https://www.basmind.org/donations/
Share your Story
If you have a personal story that you would like to share with us, then we would love to hear it! We are looking for current or past service-users who are happy to tell us about their experiences with mental health and how our services have helped them.
It can be tough to open up about experiencing a mental health problem but knowing someone has gone through the same things as you and is on the road to recovery can really inspire people to seek the help they need – so please do get in touch and let us know about your experiences; you can remain anonymous if you wish. Please email email@example.com
We prefer to design services with service users, and ex services users and you know best what worked well and what did not work quite so well.
