Get involved

Help raise funds for the McPin Foundation!

You can make a regular or one off donation via Virgin Money giving

You can support us from the comfort of your sofa. An easy way to support us is through shopping online through the portal – easy fundraising. You can support as many charities as you like and it doesn’t cost you a penny. The retailers you shop with donate straight to the charities of your choice.

Fancy setting yourself a challenge? We are a small family foundation with big ambitions. Help us make a difference by running, walking or cycling for McPin, donating vital funds for an issue that affects us all. We put people with mental health problems and their families at the heart of research to ensure it’s focused on the issues that really matter to people. Raised funds will help us support people with mental health problems back into work; to tackle the stigma of mental illness; to evaluate new ideas and solutions to help keep people well; to prevent suicide and save lives. Interested?

There are lots of other ways to get involved with the McPin Foundation

If you are interested in getting involved in research we have a public involvement in research programme led by Dr Thomas Kabir. We recruit people to research advisory groups, we have a peer review panel that assesses proposals and provides feedback on the research plans, we also have our own advisory group to steer our work.
