Fosters Solicitors continues partnership with Norfolk and Waveney Mind

We are delighted to confirm our continued partnership with local mental health charity, Norfolk and Waveney Mind.

In 2022, we named them our charity of the year, and had a brilliant year working together, which included our colleagues volunteering with the charity at events, as well as undertaking a number of fundraising activities, seeing us raise over £3,500.

In addition, we have been able to utilise some of the great practical services that the charity can provide, including mindfulness sessions and suicide awareness training for our staff – and we have also collaborated on events such as Norwich Pride, where the charity’s volunteers joined our team to promote their services on our stand.

Explaining the reasoning behind the news, Fosters’ Chief Executive, Chris Brown said: “The importance of partnership across all that we do at Fosters is paramount to our core values, and for us our relationship with Norfolk and Waveney Mind epitomises this.

“Throughout our first year working with the charity and their team, we have not only been able to help raise some much-needed financial support for them, but also engage our staff through volunteering projects and joint event initiatives. This is why when we asked our colleagues about who they would like to support as our 2023 charity of the year, Norfolk and Waveney Mind came out top again. We therefore look forward to another great year!”

Victoria Johnson, Partnerships and Income Generation Manager at Norfolk and Waveney Mind, commented: “Thank you so much to the team at Fosters Solicitors for agreeing to support Norfolk and Waveney Mind for the second year running. As Norfolk and Waveney’s leading mental health charity, we support thousands of local people every year through our wide range of services and support programmes.

“Each year the demand for our services increases as more and more people seek support for their mental health. By selecting us as their charity of the year, Fosters Solicitors are helping us ensure that no one has to face poor mental health alone, whilst also helping us to raise awareness and reduce the stigma associated with mental health. A big thank you to all the team for their support throughout 2022 and we can’t wait to see what we can achieve in 2023 together!”
