Mental Health UK was selected as Bank of America’s UK Charity Partner for 2023/24 following an employee vote. Fundraising by Bank of America’s UK employees will help fund our Into Work programme, which helps people with mental illnesses across the UK into employment. Into Work spans across London, Kent and North Wales, where our employment specialists are supporting people to make positive change and enter employment. As part of Bank of America’s Proxy Vote donation towards global mental health initiatives, the bank will also help us develop an online ‘Employment Hub’ which will provide relevant and accessible information and resources on employment and mental health.
