Inspiring Business by Sharing Success

Nottingham student lettings provider continues support for mental health charity

Nottingham student lettings agent, FHP Student Living, has pledged another year of support for mental health charity, Young Minds, after raising more than £10,000 for the cause last year.

The total was reached, with combined efforts from both parent company FHP Living, and the luxury student accommodation provider, with hopes to top the donation in 2019.

Young Minds, is a mental health charity for young people focussing on removing the stigma of mental health issues and encouraging a conversation around the topic.

As a company that works so closely with students, their well-being is crucial and something that the business takes very seriously, as director of FHP Student Living, Jonty Green, explains:

“University comes with a lot of stress, and this paired with often being away from family can be difficult for young people. In our business, we work closely with the students of Nottingham every day, and as well as providing a safe place to live, we want to create an environment where they can feel comfortable in sharing how they feel.

“We also employ a lot of young people and so it is really important for us to make a difference to those that currently work with us, and those that may in the future. Raising money for Young Minds allows us to do a little bit extra to help such a great cause.”

Carol O’Grady, associate director at FHP Living who headed up the charity initiative, said:

"Young Minds is such a great cause and we wanted to get the name of the charity and what they do as far as we could! Last year, both FHP Student Living and FHP Living, successfully raised the money through various activities, we hosted cake sales, quiz nights and a name the teddy bear competition, which were all a great success.

“Mental Health is so important and it’s a charity that resonates deeply with our members of staff. Some of our team have even chosen Young Minds as their personal charity of choice outside of their professional lives.”

In January, FHP Student Living announced another year of sponsorship with Nottingham Trent University’s sports teams, aiming to improve facilities and make sport more accessible for students across the university.
