Schools for CALM

Supporting CALM at your school is a great way to help students understand and improve their mental health while raising vital money and awareness for CALM's life saving services.


Fundraising ideas for schools

  • CALMify your fete

    Whether you're hosting a summer fete or a Christmas fair, it's easy to raise funds for CALM. Set up a bring and buy stall, sell hand made Christmas cards, or run a raffle, you can be a life-saver whatever you do.

  • Super Sponsors

    Whether students read, walk, stay silent or (insert something silly), get the whole class to collect sponsorship and have fun raising money.

  • Non-uniform day

    Ditch the uniform for a day and raise vital funds for CALM's life saving services. Why not spice it up ask people to dress as their favourite book character or hobby - whatever keeps you from living miserably.

  • Bake sale

    Who doesn't love a cake at breaktime? Treat the school to something tasty and raise vital funds for CALM's life saving services. You could even make a recipe book to sell and take the tasty home.

  • Five-a-side Footie

    Inspired by the lionesses? Check out our Football fundraising page for ideas that'll get the whole school ready for kick off.


Did you know, suicide is the biggest killer of young people in the UK?

The CALM helpline speaks to more young people than any other age group, and the need for our services continues to grow.

That's why year 12 students from Beal Sixth Form took part in the Lost Hour's Walk for CALM. They used their usual PSHE session to do a sponsored walk around the local raising amazing £366 as well as loads of awareness for mental health.
