Let’s support YoungMinds

We kicked off the new decade with an exciting new Charity Partnership. In 2020 we’re delighted to be working with YoungMinds, the UK’s leading charity fighting for young people’s mental health.

The crisis in children and young people’s mental health is real and urgent with more children and young people than ever reaching out for help with their mental health. YoungMinds is here to make sure children and young people get the best possible mental health support and have the resilience to overcome life’s difficulties. And we’re here to help YoungMinds achieve their goals.

YoungMinds - Alex's story

Look out for sponsorship, events and fundraising in store and in our offices.

At the launch of the partnership, colleagues showed their solidarity for the charity’s #HelloYellow initiative by swapping their usual clothes for the charity’s striking yellow T-shirts.

#HelloYellow aims to spread the word among children and young people that, whatever they’re going through, they can talk to someone if they’re struggling to cope.

International Transgender Day of Visibility celebrates transgender people and raises awareness of discrimination. At Wickes our LGBT+ committee marked today by sharing the changes we’re making as a business to be a more diverse and inclusive place to work, so our colleagues can be their true authentic selves. From updated HR policies, new titles on our HR system to gender-neutral toilets as part of our store refit programme. We’ve also shared what it means to identify as a trans person, selfie pledges to show support, and some really interesting colleague perspectives, you can read Kit Rayne’s below.
