Young people nowadays face many overwhelming challenges. Some may struggle with the transition to junior or secondary school and will naturally have anxieties about lots of issues, such as making friends, bullying or falling behind academically. This in addition to any stresses of home life and the results may manifest into what might be perceived as bad behaviour.
When youngsters struggle to cope, it can lead to depression, anxiety, self-harm, addiction and experimenting with substances, and other negative mental health side effects.
Supporting a charity such a Sea Sanctuary will make a real impact. Our charity will not only educate your students about social responsibility and social entrepreneurship, but also help increase your students’ understanding of mental health and wellbeing and help to reduce stigma around these issues.
Mental health is all around us and has never before been more in the spotlight.
Through fundraising and raising the awareness of our work, you will help us to continually work with young people and families, giving them the support they deserve to lead healthy lives.
Children are passionate about fundraising and helping to raise money for others, and working with Sea Sanctuary can help understanding and encourage empathy of the needs of others, by involving the students to share ideas, learn new skills, and develop and build new relationships and trust.
We want to help you get the best out of your fundraising experience and help you reach your target. The Sea Sanctuary team can work with you and it’s a great way to encourage students to take the lead in organising events and coming up with fundraising ideas which can boost their own confidence and wellbeing.
We can provide you with a range of fundraising materials, along with support and information about what we do along the way.
We have partnership opportunities for both primary and secondary schools.
We would feel privileged for your school to support the work of Sea Sanctuary. In return for choosing to fundraise for Sea Sanctuary we are delighted to be able to offer the following:
