Giving Back

How Alice & Peg Gives Back

We are SO PROUD to announce that we donate £1 from every single box sold to YoungMinds and so far, because of your support, we have been able to donate over £5,000 to them.  YoungMinds UK are the UK’s leading charity fighting for children and young people’s mental health. Turning real-life experiences into positive change, they are fighting for a future where all young minds are supported through life, whatever the challenges.

2018 was a particularly special for YoungMinds, marking 25 years since they were established. In that time there has been a much needed shift in the conversation around mental health and, vitally, the crisis in children and young people’s mental health is now widely recognised. Yet, for those who need it, help is still much too difficult to find: 84% of parents of children with mental health problems told YoungMinds they find it difficult to get help for their child. Further still, 76% of parents told YoungMinds that their child’s mental health deteriorated while waiting for support from Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services.

YoungMinds exist to break down the barriers to finding support, and make sure children and young people have the resilience to overcome life’s difficulties. They are there for parents when they have nowhere else to turn, they empower professionals on the front-line of the mental health crisis, and they give children and young people a stronger voice in their future. 
If you don't already know about YoungMinds, please check out their website or their pages on social media - they have some amazing services including a Crisis Messenger service, providing a free, 24/7 crisis support to young people.
To ensure our donations are compliant with the Charities Act and Fundraising Regulations, we now donate £1 of each sale to YoungMinds via Work for Good.
