Supporting Mental Health
Mental health is a topic that's often swept under the rug. It's something we don't talk about. We don't know how to talk about it. And we can't find the words to describe it.
But mental health is also an important issue that needs to be addressed and managed properly. One in four people are affected by mental health conditions each year, but only one in five people seek help for them.
We want to create a community where people can speak about their own experiences and issues with mental health, and where they can also find help if they need it. Mental health affects us all - so let’s talk about it together!
We wanted to create a clothing brand that not only focuses on mental health awareness and breaking stigma, but also reflects the true Geordie heart and spirit in our name, heritage and clothing designs.
We strongly believe that there is a need for more mental health awareness and education. This is why we have chosen to support The Mental Health Foundation by donating 10% of any sales made through our online store.
We have chosen to work in partnership with Work for Good to be able to support our chosen mental health charity with donations as well as helping to raise awareness surrounding mental health issues.
Our first mental health charity that we have chosen to support is Mental Health Foundation
The Mental Health Foundation is the leading mental health charity in the UK, providing vital services to help people with their mental health and well-being.
The Mental Health Foundation is a charity that has been providing support for people with mental health issues since 1949. They provide services and advice to help people cope with the challenges of mental health.
They believe that everyone should be able to live their life as they want, without judgement or fear of discrimination. They are passionate about improving the quality of life for everyone by using their knowledge and experience to make a difference in the lives of others.
The Mental Health Foundation also provide information on how to stay mentally healthy, how to recognise when someone might need some extra help, and how to find it.

Our mission is to help charities raise funds from purpose driven small businesses.
We believe that it is incredibly important to drive change socially, environmentally and economically. We have a responsibility to make a positive impact and contribute to a fairer, more equal and happier world.
We are a small team aligned in purpose, and inspired by what we can learn from each other. We have an opportunity to make a difference and this makes us proud to be part of Work for Good.
