Brighter Berkshire A Year of Mental Health 2017 in partnership with Berkshire Community Foundation.

£1 Per Employee will go towards a collaborative effort across the county to improve mental health.

We’re now calling on businesses to get involved to:

  • Make a pledge to improve the mental health of your workforce
  • Create a work opportunity for someone with a mental health problem

With statistics showing that mental health issues cost businesses over £1,000 per employee, we are encouraging business to donate just £1 per employee to the Brighter Berkshire fund. All donations will go towards grants going out across the region to local charities and initiatives aimed at making a lasting difference to the mental health of the Berkshire population.
