This year, we are raising funds for our mental health in Merthyr Tydfil project.

Merthyr Tydfil has the highest rate of poor mental health in Wales. Once a sought-after place to live, poverty, ill-health and poor mental health are issues among many other pressures faced by men in Merthyr as a post-industrial community.

We're working to change this. As part of our overall mission to bring people together and challenge rising prejudice, we have tapped into an urgent and important issue to bring together different people in the community and build a local grassroots campaign.

We're making a difference, but there's much more work to do. We're working to develop workshops looking at historical attitudes to mental illness and how we interpret it today. We're building coalitions of support to take to the local health board and Welsh health minister.

That's where you come in. Our work is reliant upon small donations made by generous supporters like you.

And starting today, known as Giving Tuesday, any donations to this project will be doubled for 7 days. That means your £10 is worth £20 to our work – that's a massive difference!
