Workplace fundraising
We greatly appreciate the support of workplaces who are committed to improving mental health outcomes for young people. Whether it is a staff fundraising activity, holding an event or participating in a physical challenge, your employees can make a meaningful impact to the vital work of headspace.

Fundraising at school is a great way to get involved with headspace and help improve mental health literacy within your school community. Schools support us in lots of different ways, for example, holding bake sales, movie nights, fetes or plain clothes days. Please note, if you are under 18, you will need permission from a parent, guardian or teacher to fundraise for us
