Anxiety UK

Anxiety UK are a self-funded charity who strive to improve the quality of life for anyone affected by anxiety, stress or anxiety-based depression. We rely entirely on the generosity of our supporters, members and beneficiaries to continue this valuable work, and help make the despair caused by anxiety a thing of the past.

Formed in 1970 by someone living with agoraphobia for those affected by anxiety disorders, today the charity is still a user-led organisation, run by people with experience of living with anxiety, stress or anxiety-based depression, supported by a high-profile medical advisory panel.

Anxiety UK is a member of the Association of Mental Health Providers. We work to relieve and support those living with anxiety and anxiety-based depression by providing information, support and understanding via an extensive range of services, including 1:1 therapy. We work regularly with external agencies and healthcare professionals to improve services for those living with anxiety and anxiety-based depression and also campaign to raise awareness of the conditions.

Family Holiday Charity

Family Holiday Charity helps families get time away together, often for the first time ever. We're here for children who have never seen the sea. For teenagers who can't remember when they last saw mum smile. For parents having to choose between a day out and a pair of school shoes. For young carers, grandparent carers. For families facing illness, isolation, or bereavment.

Holidays open up new possibilities. There's time enough to share a laugh, watch the tide come in, and make happier memories.

When frontline care proffessionals make a referal, we help each family choose the UK holiday they need. It could be a caravan on the coast, a woodland adventure, or a day out at a theme park. 

Whatever the weather, if it means time spent together, even a day's holiday helps build relationships, confidence, a stronger sense of community, and hope for the future. 

More than 2.2m families in the UK can't get away on holiday. By playing our lottery, you're creating the time and space for mums, dads, carers and children to make lasting memories that make a lifetime of difference for families facing really tough times.

The Family Holiday Charity - for holidays that make a lifetime of difference

Hetty's Charity - Founded in 1996 by a group of Mums who were all experiencing the pain and heartbreak of a loved one’s addiction, this courageous group of ladies decided to offer each other support when they realised there was nowhere else to access help. This group gradually grew in numbers, and with a lot of hard work, grant funding, and dedicated volunteers, the service grew from a single peer support group, to having a crisis support line, to having a paid member of staff, and now into the service it is today, a registered charity supporting over 200 families per month throughout the districts of Nottinghamshire; Mansfield, Ashfield, Bassetlaw, Newark & Sherwood, and County South.

The Hetty’s service offers a variety of support methods, and structured psychosocial interventions, delivered by our experienced family recovery workers and volunteers, to ensure that every client has the best chance of recovering from the effects of their loved one’s addiction and returning to their everyday life. Each intervention provides the tools needed for families to reduce isolation, increase confidence, set appropriate boundaries, become more knowledgeable about the cycle of addiction, and work through any feelings of guilt, shame and anger.

Islington Mind

“What mental health needs is more sunlight, more candour, and more unashamed conversation.”
- Glenn Close

Islington Mind is a local Mind association operating in Islington, London. We support people who experience mental health problems for the past 39 years. We work with the local authority and National Health Service (NHS) to cater the mental health needs of our local communities. Islington is one of the most deprived communities in England where poverty and deprivation is high. It is one of the densest boroughs in London too. All these contribute to high level of stress, anxiety, depression, and other long term mental illnesses.

A large proportion of our service users are old and have complex mental health issues along with other comorbidities- pushing them to further deprivation, poverty, isolation, and early death than their peers.
Every year we support over 1100 people with complex mental health issues.

We are one of a few charities in London providing specialist mental health support to LGBTQ+ community members of greater London for over two decades.

This year we are stretched with our own resources as number of people seeking mental health support has increased dramatically due to the pandemic. As the need is so great and urgent, we ae compelled to use our own reserves to assist these people. But that will only last for a few months. With your help we can continue to support.

The support and advice we offer aims to improve people's mental (and physical) well-being, strengthen self-esteem and confidence, promote strong relationships with family, friends, and communities, helping people expand their support network, improve resilience, and improve self-management of their mental health problems. We also help people get into education, training or work and achieve their personal and social goals.
Increasing understanding about mental health is a priority for us so we also work in communities to raise awareness and challenge the stigma which continues to affect the lives of people with mental health problems.
We are an independent charity. Our strength is our volunteers and passionate staff. Your donations can help support our work across Islington and surrounding areas.

Jubilee Sailing Trust

We are the Jubilee Sailing Trust, a charity that changes lives through adventure and exploration onboard our tall ship, Tenacious. Tenacious is the only sea-going tall ship in the world designed, built and sailed by a mixed-ability crew.

Our voyages are for people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities, giving everyone the opportunity to explore their potential through inclusive adventures at sea.

Because we’re a charity we rely on the support of others. It’s critical we can continue our work. Our voyages build confidence and resilience in those who sail with us. They bring people together in diverse teams where differences disappear. Voyage Crew tell us their perceptions change and they are able to achieve things they previously did not think possible.

These experiences change lives, and we’d love you to join us. By joining the JST Community Lottery you will have the chance to win £25,000 every week. Plus you’ll be helping to fund our life changing voyages.
Support us now. Join the adventure.

Your donations will help us provide counselling and support to low-income and at risk people from across the country. By preventing relationship breakdown or supporting people to separate healthily, we’ll be one step closer to stopping all the side effects that come along when relationships go wrong – like parental conflict, domestic abuse, debt, homelessness and addiction.

Relate logo

Relate Derby and Southern Derbyshire

Relationship breakdowns can ruin lives, and families can be torn apart by the aftermath of a divorce or seperation.

Relationship breakdown can lead to:

  • Mental and physical ill health
  • Debt
  • Loneliness
  • Unemployment and problems at work
  • Homelessness

Relate helps to prevent relationship breakdown, and when things go wrong we are there to pick up the pieces. We do this through conselling, and other support services. By donating to Relate you could change someone's life in your local area-help us to give the gift of a healthy relationship.

At Relate Derby and Southern Derbyshire, our children and young people's service is called Safe Speak. It is widely recognised that emotional and mental health problems developed in childhood and adolescence go on to affect adults in later life. At Relate Derby we help children and young people explore and develop coping strategies for issues such as family breakdown, bullying and peer relationships, bereavement, the formation of new families or the absence of a family member in their life.

Help us continue to make a real difference to the lives of children, young people and their families.

Step One supports people to fulfil their potential through specialist mental health, employment and supported living services.

We are motivated by seeing people making progress. We work positively with people to identify their individual needs and support them to manage their wellbeing and take positive steps forward.

Our diverse services and teams have expertise ranging from mental health crisis care and recovery, to one-to-one enabling support and employment mentoring.

The Mental Health Lottery

The Mental Health Lottery is run by North East Charity Anxious Minds who is a member of the Association of Mental Health Providers and an organisational member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.

Like lots of smaller charities, it struggles to raise sufficient funding to support the people they serve. The Mental Health Lottery establishes a new and nationwide source of financing to allow supporters to impact mental health support directly.

It will allow Anxious Minds to expand its counselling services both for adults and children across the UK and support these smaller grassroots mental health charities that work directly within our communities.

The Wolfpack Project

What We Do:

We are Nottingham’s Leading Youth Mental Health Charity. We provide our young people aged 16-35 with much needed help through 1 on 1 sessions and social support groups. This allows them to talk about anything they need to and get advice from a mental health first aid trained professional and meet people within the same age group and with similar interests as themselves.

Our purpose is to make sure all young people across Nottinghamshire have the opportunity to make meaningful connections and have access to the mental health support they need, our mission is to give young people access to mental health support and give them the opportunity to make valuable relationships and our vision is a world where no young people are socially isolated or alone with mental health.

By 2026 we would like to have implemented 3 new programmes that will lead to our end goals of equipping young people to protect their mental health and create and maintain their own support system, teach adults who young people may turn to have the skills and confidence to help with their mental health and for young people to have a stronger voice in changes that affect their mental health and to be an influence for change to provide future generations with the best possible help.

At Thistle, we support people living with disabilities, long-term health conditions or facing challenging life situations to live well, whatever that means to them.

We support people to take control of their life, focusing on the person, not their situation. We listen to what each person tells us they need and we tailor our support around that, working beside them until they are able to manage life without us.

With your support we can reach more people across Scotland – and sooner. When we’re able to reach people sooner, we can help ensure that someone’s health crisis doesn’t become a life crisis.

York Samaritans

York Samaritans provide emotional support to anyone going through a difficult time in their lives, perhaps even feeling suicidal, and need someone to talk to. Samaritans don't give advice, don't judge people and never tell them what to do.

What we offer to anyone who makes contact, is the opportunity to talk about what is worrying them and perhaps help them think about their options.

Sometimes being able to do this helps our callers to either arrive at their own solutions or come to terms with the situation. This service is provided by telephone, email, text or face to face in the branch.
