Event description
An introduction to the next phase of Men's Mental Health Swindon, and how you can get involved in creating change in your local community.

About this Event

Following the success of our initial campaign and launch of our support services website back in May, we (the organisers behind Men's Mental Health - Swindon) have taken the decision to evolve into a Community Interest Company.

Up until now, our campaigns have been ad-hoc and funded through the generosity of our own personal networks.

But through the vehicle of a CIC, we'll be in a position to apply for community grants, private funding, and sponsorship; allowing us to continually promote both national and local services to support Swindon men in improving their mental wellbeing.

Behind every successful CIC, is passionate group of individuals who make up the 'steering committee': who are tasked with further developing the mission, choosing its priority projects, and monitoring the CIC's overall progress.

Whilst no previous experience in being involved in a CIC or charity is required, we're hosting an open evening for anyone Swindon-based to pop along and find out more about our plans for the future and what's required from a CIC steering group member.

There will also be an opportunity for you to put your name forward to join our CIC steering group.

We're looking for individuals who shared our common goals, and can add value to developing our campaign even further.

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch with co-founder Alex Pollock via alex@mmhSwindon.co.uk

Refreshments will be provided.
