Who funds our work?
We work in partnership with the Charlie Waller Memorial Trust.
Set up in memory of a young man who took his own life, the Charlie Waller Memorial Trust aims to help people recognise the signs of depression in themselves and others, to equip young people to look after their mental wellbeing, and to ensure expert help is available when needed.
The Trust reaches thousands of children and young people, their teachers and parents through its free mental health training in schools. It also gives training in universities, colleges and workplaces, and to GPs and nurses, aiming to lessen the stigma around depression, improve treatment and reduce the number of suicides.

St John’s Foundation funded our original film project, in which 15 young people, mainly boys and young men, filmed their friends and members of their family talking about a range of issues related to mental health and gender-stereotyping. The young people were involved in all stages of the project: applying for funding; planning questions for content; being trained by our film-maker; filming and being filmed; reviewing and giving feedback on footage; helping plan the film launch and being part of the discussion panel at the launch.
They have also given us 2 year’s funding to make a series of films with our 14 lead schools and with parent and community groups. Plus we will be making a series of films called “Men who Care”, presenting positive images of men in caring roles.
We have also previously received start-up funding from Bath & North East Somerset Council.
