The Event Industry’s social enterprise for mental health and wellbeing education launches crowdfunding campaign to raise up to £3000

EventWell Ltd, the charitable social enterprise, educating and campaigning for better mental health and wellbeing in the events industry, needs a minimum of £1,000 to support its #EventWell20 campaign and will launch its first crowdfunding project on the afternoon of Monday 2nd March.

The campaign is part of a Crowdfunder project in partnership with Back Her Business, a NatWest funding initiative that is designed to support the set-up of female-led businesses (whether for profit or not for profit) in the UK by enabling women to test their business ideas and projects. Only one in three entrepreneurs in the UK are women and the Back her Business initiative, which shortlisted a group of eligible projects including EventWell, is also supported by Royal Bank and Ulster Bank, and provides free coaching and mentoring and up to 50% of the fundraising target in additional grant funding.

EventWell’s crowdfunding aims are to provide vital support for the 2020 Event Wellbeing Day and Event Wellbeing Week campaigns for the event industry and the EventWell Manifesto. All of the money raised, including any match funding, will go towards the overall campaign management and promotion to reach professionals and businesses within the event industry. 

It will also enable the social enterprise to kick start their #EventWell20 legacy project of providing free education to event management students and under-graduates on the importance of self-care and resilience in events, as the new and emerging talent for the industry.

Helen Moon, Managing Director of EventWell and Founder of Event Wellbeing Day and Week said “I am incredibly excited to have been accepted onto this brilliant new programme and project supporting women in business and entrepreneurs. This is a perfect opportunity for EventWell to raise essential funds to support this year’s vital mental health and wellbeing campaign for the industry, allowing us to reach new audiences and really impact the mental health and wellbeing of professionals in our industry”

Anyone considering making a pledge and supporting the project has the opportunity to take advantage of a number of rewards from free mental health awareness guides to free mental health first aid training.
