How have we used donations so far?

The Charlie Watkins Foundation have been incredibly fortunate to receive a huge volume of
donations and individuals willing to volunteer.

Our partnership with Mid and North East Essex Mind to run the ‘Chat with Charlie’ initiative, an anonymous
online chatroom, achieved some great results and gave many young people at the University of Essex the mechanism through which they could reach out for support if they were struggling. This project has now ended, but we will be building on its success in our future plans for the new year.

We are delighted that our relationship with Essex Community Foundation (ECF) continues to grow as they expertly manage part of the Foundation on our behalf. Through ECF we are pleased to be support a new initiative for this year – an 18-month project run by the Colchester and Tendring Youth Enquiry Service (YES).

We are also collaborating with the students mental health charity Student Minds on a vital new assessment tool which will be co-created with students, empowering them to be part of the assessment process to recognise and reward universities seeking to gain the  Charter Award Scheme accreditation as defined by Student Minds University Mental Health Charter.
