‘TIME TO CHANGE’ IS CLOSING AFTER FUNDING ENDS
The following is a statement from ‘Time to Change’
“It is with great sadness that we announce that Time to Change as England’s primary anti-stigma and discrimination programme will close on 31 March 2021 when the campaign’s funding ends.”
“You have played an integral role in our overall success – you and more than 1600 Pledged Employers employing more than 4 million people across England have championed this cause and created a more open and understanding culture around mental health problems in the workplace. Together we have improved public attitudes by 12.7% over the past 15 years.
We want to say a huge thank you for helping to improve the lives of those of us with mental health problems, for enabling everyone to bring their whole selves to work, to create safe spaces for people to seek support and for everything you’ve done to support and amplify our message through your work.”
“Although we have been unable to secure government funding we will continue campaigning right up until the last moment.
We will be working with our Charity Partners, Mind and Rethink Mental Illness, to embed anti-stigma ambitions in what they do, share our learnings with others, and of course deliver our remaining peaks of national activity: Ask Twice in November and Time to Talk Day on Thursday 4 February 2021.”
