Penumbra was set up in 1985 to enable people with long term mental health issues to live independent lives in their own communities. Community-based fundraising is an important source of funds for this work and a great way to raise awareness of mental health and wellbeing in your area.

Penumbra supports workplaces, schools, student unions and community organisations to run activities for the major mental health awareness events, including October’s World Mental Health Day, which increase knowledge of mental health and wellbeing and raise funds for our work.

To find out how Penumbra can support your community fundraising or awareness raising event please email our team fundraising@penumbra.org.uk or call 0131 475 2549.
