Funders' Alliance

About the Funders' Alliance

The Children and Young People's Mental Health Coalition was set up and developed with funding from the Zurich Community Trust (ZCT). ZCT has learnt that by influencing policy and practice the reach and breadth of impact can be more significant in the long term.

ZCT is very open to working in collaboration with other funders to share the learning and to help sustain the coalition for the future. This is an opportunity to join a collaboration of funders to support the coalition to influence policy and bring about system change. If we can influence Parliamentarians together then there is a greater chance of having the right services available at the right time and in the right place for vulnerable young people before their problems turn into larger ones later in life.

What being a member of the Funders' Alliance means

The basic cost of running the CYPMHC is £80,000 per annum. For a commitment of £5,000-£10,000 per year for 3-5 years, Funders' Alliance members would receive regular updates about the children and young people's mental health landscape as well as having access to experts on the topic. In addition, you would be invited to an annual networking event to hear more about the developing landscape and impact of the coalition's work. Members of the CYPMHC Funders' Alliance will receive recognition on the CYPMHC website and in literature.

Our Funders' Alliance members now also include Paul Hamlyn Foundation and Comic Relief.
