Fundraising for Rotherham & Barnsley Mind

Rotherham & Barnsley Mind simply cannot operate without the support of the local community. Although affiliated to National Mind, Rotherham & Barnsley Mind itself is an independently run local charity and financially autonomous from National Mind. This means – we are responsible for raising all of our running costs.

Trusts & Foundations

The support of trusts and foundations is crucial to Rotherham & Barnsley Mind’s work, enabling us to continue providing vital support to people suffering from mental-ill health in the boroughs of Rotherham & Barnsley and its surrounding areas.
We are incredibly lucky to have received some great funding towards our projects over the years, and a very big thank you is extended to all those Trusts and Foundations that have supported our work.
