Young Minds Matter is a registered mental health charity supporting young people, based in Stratford upon Avon.

We provide trained mentors to support students on a 1:1 basis in local primary and secondary schools. We offer this service free of charge, simply as we are acutely aware that most schools do not have any budget to support their student’s mental health and we do not want any child to go without support.

Our mentors are making a positive difference to students lives; building resilience and increased self-esteem and confidence as well as giving them a sense of purpose and ultimately a happier and more fulfilled life. We also have an events arm, involving young people where we can, providing them with a sense of achievement and cous as well as helping them to raise awareness and funds.

Key Dates and Timings

The channel swim is happening in July, the sponsorship is to help promote the event to a wider audience, and offer our channel swimmers the greatest chance possible with the necessary training and support.

Specific Opportunity Details

In 2022, a team of boys swam the channel, which is in a challenge itself, and managed to raise a huge amount of £15,000 for YMM. The event was inspirational not only for the swimmers, but also for other young people. In July, we have a new team of eight courageous young individuals embarking on the monumental challenge of swimming the English Channel again in two-4-person relay teams, all in the name of raising vital funds for our cause. It's a remarkable endeavour that symbolises their commitment to supporting mental health awareness and advocacy.
