Our partnership enables Action for Children to deliver a nationwide, preventive, mental health programme for young people in schools for the first time. Our aim is to raise £2 million for Action for Children over the course of our partnership - £1 million from colleagues and £1 million in matched giving from Royal Mail. With our funds, the charity can employ specialist youth workers to deliver face-to-face support sessions for 8,000 young people, to help prevent them from developing mental health problems.

As part of our ‘everyone’s a winner’ approach, two other charities: Mind and Mental Health UK received £50,000 each, to be spent on the propositions we agreed with them. These propositions aligned to our wider mental health campaign.
