Lloyds Banking Group
Lloyds Banking Group launched a new two-year partnership with Mental Health UK in January 2017, to support us and our sister organisations in Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland. Through this partnership, Lloyds Banking Group aims to promote awareness of the link between mental health and money problems, encourage discussion between customers and colleagues and raise at least £2million per year in offices and branches across the UK.
Through this partnership, Lloyds Banking Group will work with Mental Health UK to create a pioneering Mental Health and Money Advice Service which will offer support for people experiencing both mental health and financial difficulties.
David Oldfield, Group Director Retail & Consumer Finance, and Executive Sponsor for Disability at Lloyds Banking Group said:
“It’s very clear to us from our colleagues how much they care about mental health and they recognise how hard this can be to discuss. I’m delighted that the Group is working with Mental Health UK to help raise awareness and reduce the stigma of mental illness. Our colleagues feeling passionate about the issue is key to how successful we can be in working with our Charity partners and delivering the commitments we made within our Helping Britain Prosper Plan. We have a great track record of raising significant funds through our colleagues who are also very involved across their local communities. Given the importance of good mental health and wellbeing I’m confident that with the support of our colleagues we’ll be able to raise £2m this year alone to help Mental Health UK to provide support and help for those who need it”
