2018-19 is the fourth year we have had a BPCSU Charity of the Year nominated by students!

This means every fundraising event we do will be in aid of an amazing local cause. This year students felt mental health is an important contemporary issue that needs addressing, and voted for Dorset Mind to be our Charity of the Year.

Dorset Mind is a mental health charity that has been supporting local people with mental health challenges since 1946.  Where possible, Dorset Mind challenges the stigma and inequality of mental ill health so that neither prevents people receiving the information and support they need.  The charity promotes the ethos of recovery from mental ill health by educating people about recovery.  They also provide responsive and safe support services for all communities to assist them in their own recovery.
