Bob Thust, Director for Responsible Business at Deloitte, said:
"By using the skills and expertise of our staff, we believe we can leave a lasting legacy that will continue to help each charity long after the partnership comes to a close. We’re planning to raise more than £2 million for them during the next three years, supporting their vital work, but also offer professional services skills that are often too costly and can make a real impact on their business."
Paul Farmer, Mind’s CEO comments:
"None of our past or present partnerships delivers the scale of impact that working with Deloitte can bring to promoting good mental health, particularly in the workplace. This is an encouraging sign that mental health is increasingly being recognised as a cause that people really want to support. It seems that the stigma surrounding mental health is lifting.
Since the launch of our partnership in 2013, fundraising has kicked off to a great start with a partner and director raffle and staff taking part in the JP Morgan Challenge, cricket tournament and lots more."
