Exertis launches Charity Committee with Mental Health UK partnership

Exertis has unveiled the Exertis Charity Committee and its official partnership with Mental Health UK. It has set a target of £125,000 to raise in the Charity Committee’s inaugural year, of which Mental Health UK will be the beneficiary.

Mental Health UK brings together the heritage and experience of four charities from across the country that've been supporting people with their mental health for nearly 50 years. People around the country have been impacted by mental health issues, and the Exertis Charity Committee feels that partnering with Mental Health UK allows it to make a significant impact in supporting those affected.

Hayley Gunn-Bruce, Head of Partnerships at Mental Health UK said, “We’re so delighted to announce our partnership with Exertis. People need support for their mental health now more than ever. At Mental Health UK, we are so excited to work with businesses like Exertis who are passionate about supporting our vital work and who want to be part of creating real lasting change. We won’t stop until everyone has the tools they need to live their best possible life and we know this partnership, through the amazing fundraising efforts of Exertis colleagues, will help that happen. We cannot wait to begin.”

The Exertis Charity Committee is split into two broad categories, fundraising, and volunteering, each with sub-committees to support them in achieving their strategic goals.

To celebrate the launch of its Charity Committee, Exertis has launched ‘Ride to Exertis Almo’ – an initiative where staff will amass distance by peddling on bikes to reach a goal of 1,750 miles, which is the equivalent of halfway between Exertis UK and Exertis Almo’s Philadelphia headquarters.

Simultaneously, staff at Exertis Almo in America will also be accumulating 1,750 miles by riding on bikes and will be raising money for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention to raise awareness of the importance of mental health in their own community.

Paul Bryan, Managing Director of Exertis UK added, "the statistics surrounding mental health in the UK show that many of us will struggle with our mental health at some point in our lives. Sadly, not everyone seeks help and this can lead to terrible consequences. We want to support our people's mental health and be committed to helping where we can in society. Of course, we have our fantastic Mental Health First Aiders and also access to other Employee Assistance Programmes but partnering with Mental Health UK will help elevate this important topic – not just for Exertis, but for all those who require mental health support. This is a problem that needs talking about and the taboo needs to be broken down. We're thrilled to be working with Mental Health UK and raising money for a charity which does such awesome work.”
