Each year, the Unicard team nominate and vote for our Charity of the Year. We will pledge to support this charity over the course of the year in a number of ways, including fundraisers and volunteer days.
Unicard are pleased to announce our chosen charity for this year, Dorset Mind UK. Look out for updates on our fundraising activities over the next 12 months.
Local charity Dorset Mind educates, challenges mental health stigma and inequality, and encourages recovery by empowering individuals to develop resilience.
Their 1-2-1 and group support includes active monitoring (CBT-type coaching), befriending, counselling, mentoring and a wide range of support groups. These help people regain social skills and develop confidence.
The charity also delivers educational wellbeing programmes for schools and workplaces and provide volunteer opportunities across all areas of the organisation.
