Corporate Partnerships

Get your company involved

Charity of the year

Choosing CALM as your Charity of the Year will do more than support our life-saving services. It'll raise awareness and break down stigma, bringing support to your staff and customers.


Fundraising faqs

CALM currently spends 80% of its expenditure on delivering our services: that’s answering calls and webchats on our helpline; working with communities across the country; and campaigning for better awareness and understanding of suicide and its devastating impact. Everything else is spent on keeping the charity running and fundraising to ensure we can help the hundreds of thousands of people who need our support every year.

At the moment, the bulk of our funding comes from our amazing supporters – you! We receive a small but hopefully growing proportion of our income from trusts, foundations, local authorities and corporates.
