In Aid of Mind
As part of the BLC10 campaign at Blue Light Card, we felt that it was important to have a charity partner. We are proud to be running the BLC10 campaign in aid of Mind. Mind is the mental health charity and they are here to make sure no one has to face a mental health problem alone.
For the last 4 years they have been running the Blue Light Programme in support of the Emergency Services, and this felt like a great fit for Blue Light Card.
THE BLUE LIGHT PROGRAMME
Mind is delivering the Blue Light Programme to provide mental health support for emergency services staff and volunteers from ambulance, fire, police and search and rescue services across England and Wales.
Thousands of staff and volunteers across these services have actively challenged mental health stigma, learnt more about mental health and made positive changes in their approach to wellbeing with the support of the Blue Light Programme so far.
You can access their training, information and mental health support for both services and individuals via their website.
WHAT WILL BLUE LIGHT CARD BE DOING FOR MIND?
The partnership with Mind has two elements to it, raising money for them and raising awareness about what they do. Blue Light Card will be running various events to raise money, selling items to raise money and running other fundraising activities. In addition to this we will be bringing you information about Mind and in particular their Blue Light Programme, showing what they do and have done for others.
