We can’t do what we do without you. Our donors and fundraisers help to keep services running.

Lancashire Mind is a local charity. It costs around £2 million per year to provide all our current services. We wouldn’t be able to continue providing them if it wasn’t for the amazing support we receive from people, groups and businesses in Lancashire.

We work across Lancashire where almost 1.5 million people live. With at least 1 in 4 people experiencing poor mental health in any given year, that’s around 375,000 people in Lancashire. People in all walks of life can be affected and at any age. Lancashire Mind supports people who are experiencing poor mental health. We also work with children and adults to help people learn about their mental health and how to look after it so that they can maintain good mental health.

Are Mind and Lancashire Mind the same?

No. We’re part of the national Mind federation but we’re an independent charity, responsible for generating our own income. We rely on our supporters, alongside applying to charitable trusts and foundations to fund our own services. For example, our virtual wellbeing coaching that helps people identify and overcome barriers to achieving good mental wellbeing, is only available for people across Lancashire thanks to the generosity of our supporters.

Fundraising Regulator

Lancashire Mind is registered with the Fundraising Regulator, the independent regulator of charitable fundraising. Established following the 2015 cross-party review of fundraising self-regulation, it works to ensure that charities who raise money from the public do so appropriately. As a charity, Lancashire Mind follows the regulator’s Fundraising Code of Practice.
