Lloyds Banking Group have officially partnered with Mental Health UK
Lloyds Banking Group have officially partnered with Mental Health UK. Lloyds Banking Group is passionate about providing sufficient mental health support to both their customers and colleagues as well as contributing to helping Charities and
Communities across the UK as part of their commitment to Helping Britain Prosper. Lloyds Banking Group already supports a network of charitable Foundations who have collectively invested almost £600 million into thousands of local charities over the last 30 years.
Most recently, Lloyds Banking Group have partnered with Mental Health UK to promote awareness of the link between money problems and mental health difficulty, encouraging discussion between both colleagues and customers.
The aim is to raise £2 million per year across offices and branches across the country to create Mental Health and Money Support service for those who have experienced, or are experiencing, poor mental wellbeing in relation to financial struggle. Both Lloyds Banking Group and Mental Health UK believe this issue is one that increasingly needs to be addressed, which is part of a wider goal to tackle social and economic issues that individuals face every day.
The Director of External Affairs at Rethink Mental Illness, Brian Dow, has said, “We are incredibly excited about what this partnership between Mental Health UK and Lloyds Banking Group can achieve. It’s the coming together of an organisation that really understands money, and charities that really understand mental health, and those two things belong together. Having the support of such a large banking group will enable us to make a huge difference supporting the four million people affected by both mental health and financial challenges in the UK.”
