Mental Health Matters Wales (MHMWales) receives funding
from statutory bodies and charitable trusts to run projects, provide
services, support forums and engagement activities, carry out research and
contribute towards the general running costs. It also raises funds through
fundraising and providing services.
As a long-established charity, MHMWales will maintain
its independence and will ensure that any decisions about the employment of
staff and the work of the organisation complies with the aims, objectives
and values of the organisation.
MHMWales will not be influenced in its decision making by funders’
interventions. Strategic direction and overall policy is agreed by our
board of trustees, who are openly elected from the membership and have
fixed terms of office.
MHMWales is registered charity (number 1123842) and a
company limited by guarantee (number 6468412). We are governed by trustees who are
nominated and elected by our members.
MHMWales believes it is important to share
information, disseminate good practice and influence decision-making that
affects our sector and therefore are members of a variety of steering
groups throughout Wales
MHMWales was set up in 1984, and
we have worked over the years to make a real difference to the people
affected by mental health in their communities across Wales.
