Door-to-door campaign FAQs

Mental Health UK is currently operating a door-to-door campaign between September to December 2023 in the North East of England, Bristol, the Midlands and Scotland. 

By being able to talk to prospective supporters face-to-face, we have an important opportunity to raise awareness of our cause. We want to encourage people to set up a direct debit with us, so which allows us to plan for the future and continue to grow mental health services and programmes to support more people across the UK.

We’ve listed below which postcodes our fundraisers will be visiting this week:

LE2, LE3, LE4, LE5 Leicester
LE7, LE11, Charnwood

The campaign will be run by a company called Smile Fundraising Ltd. (known henceforth as ‘Smile’,, on behalf of Mental Health UK. Smile is registered with the Fundraising Regulator. Fundraisers will be wearing clothing and accessories that are branded as Mental Health UK and Smile.
