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.
