Working in partnership with industry
Since our inception, our partnerships with key groups and organisations from across various sectors has enabled us to push the reach of our voice further, offering our services and support to organisations across the country.
Our partner organisations have helped us to continue shaping the conversation around mental health. During the past few years Mates in Mind have been lucky enough to be provided a platform at numerous industry events, where we addressed the challenge of mental ill-health with diverse audiences, raising awareness about the issue and expanding upon our joined-up approach to tackling it.
Additionally, we are pleased to be working alongside a range of committed associations from across the construction industry and beyond. The support of these associations has been crucial in reaching out to a broader spectrum of individuals, supporting us to start conversations with those who might need urgent support.
Mates in Mind’s community of fundraising partners have consistently enabled us to continue driving change across UK workplaces. In addition to the brilliant individuals and groups who raise funds and awareness for us, the generous corporate donations of our industry partners have made our mission to break the silence and stigma around mental health possible.

Working together with the British Safety Council and key partners in the construction industry and mental health, we believe we can make a significant difference.”
