Your support can help us ensure that no one faces a mental health issue alone.
We are an independent charity that is responsible for delivering our own local services and obtaining our own income and fundraising. Your donation can make all the difference.
Why should you support us?
Mind in Kingston works across the London Borough of Kingston and beyond to provide quality mental health services, such as Counselling, Physical Activities, Peer Support and Art Therapy. Our Advice Line supports people to access local mental health information and we campaign on mental health issues. Some of our services are not funded and rely on donations and fundraising income.
Your support will help maintain these services and ensure we can reach as many people as possible to have better mental health.

Other ways to donate
You can donate to Mind in Kingston via the Charities Aid Foundation bank website by clicking here.
You can donate via Just Giving, which is a donation platform. You can make a single donation, or support a fundraiser. Or if you feel a bit more daring, you can organise a fundraiser yourself – previous fundraisers have done everything from marathons, bike rides, walks and even shaving their head.
Leaving a legacy in your will is another way of donating. Charities are exempt of inheritance tax which means that any amount you wish to leave is wholly for the charity.
You will need to instruct your solicitor when creating your will that you wish to leave a legacy. If you have already made your will, you can add a Codicil to your will – which adds the legacy to your existing will. For more information click here.
