CITI - Vote CALM. SAVE LIVES.
Hello Citi staff! Is it this page you're looking for? We are here to give you all the reasons (and a few more for luck) why you should vote CALM to be your next charity partner - because a vote for CALM will save lives.
The Campaign Against Living Miserably - CALM - is a small charity tackling a big problem…
Together, CALM and Citi can make sure no one in London or the UK struggles with life alone.
- Every year in the UK, there are over 200,000 suicide attempts and 6,500 tragic deaths - that’s the same number of Citi London employees
- Anyone can feel suicidal
- Suicide is the biggest killer of men under the age of 45 in the UK
Our helpline saves lives every day
CALM offers a free and confidential helpline 365 days a year. From money worries and loneliness, to anxiety and depression, our expert staff help people find hope and find a way forward. We prevent suicide every single day.
But, since 2020, calls to the CALM helpline have surged by 74%. Our income has not.
So right now, for every call we can answer, there’s another we can’t.
The “No One Left Alone Project”, supported by Citi, will help us change that. A vote for us will mean we can grow and evolve our helpline services so we can be there for everyone who needs us, and make sure no one is left struggling with life alone.
Choosing CALM as your NEXT Charity PARTNER...
...will do more than support CALM’s life-saving services. It will raise awareness and breakdown stigma around mental wellbeing and suicide within Citi, at a time that is needed the most:
- Two thirds of Londoners are struggling with their mental health, right now
- That’s over 4,000 Citi employees
- The Banking and Finance sector has always been high risk for mental health struggles and suicidal thoughts - even more so in the face of a recession
But we can help. We’ll provide you with lots of resources to help you look after your own mental health and those around you - your friends, your family, your colleagues. Support which has never been needed more.
What's more, the partnership will be all the fun, with unique fundraising and volunteering opportunities such as:
A comedy night with special celebrity guests
Citi 2 City (Amsterdam) bike ride
Ice bath challenge
London Skyscraper Challenge
Representing CALM at the PGA Golf Tour at Wentworth, and at boxing and football events in London
Attending Pride events up and down the country
Become a CALM champion - attend workshops to develop your knowledge of CALM and how to support the people in your life - then rep CALM within Citi
But don't just take our word for it...
SHARMILA KUPFUWA, HEAD OF HEALTH MANAGEMENT, BMW GROUP UK
I do reflect on what we offer by way of education, support services and signposting to the apprentices and realise that not every young (or older) person has access to what we have in place, I am so pleased that we have your support with the sessions you offer in a way which is engaging and meaningful to our young people.
BRIGHTON MARATHON RUNNER, APRIL 2022
The CALM Team literally made the day about a thousand times better and cannot thank you all enough for all the love and support you've given us runners over the past few months, it's been a ball!
CRAIG MCNALLY, COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIPS MANAGER AT LNER
It’s really important to us that we have a partnership that resonates with our people and CALM’s work does just that. What makes the partnership so successful is that the team at CALM are a joy to work with and are always happy to support us with new ideas and new ways to engage the business.
GRAHAM BIGGS, CORPORATE COMMUNICATIONS DIRECTOR, BMW GROUP UK
Having worked with many charities over the years, CALM stands out as especially creative and engaged. They are a pleasure to work with and we have seen a powerful resonance with our team across the UK. We are inspired both by the work they do publicly and the support they offer within our organisation.
