In light of the recent announcement by Time to Change in England, we wish to explain our position in relation to the programme in Wales. We are aware that active members of the Time to Change Wales movement will be keen to know of the implications of England’s announcement for Wales. We wish to express our solidarity with our colleagues in England upon learning of the closure of their programme on 31 March 2021. We are keen to point out that this decision has no immediate effect on the running of the Time to Change programme in Wales. The funding streams differ for Wales and England. This means we are following our own funding pursuit beyond March 2021. We will share a further update on the outcome as soon as it’s possible for us to do so.

In the meantime, Time to Change Wales will continue to run campaigns and deliver activity to end stigma and mental health discrimination in Wales. In November, we will be running our award-winning men’s mental health campaign, Talking Is A Lifeline, and we will be marking Time to Talk Day on 4 February 2021 as part of a 4-nations campaign across the UK.

Champions, employers and individuals play a hugely important role in supporting the Time to Change Wales mission to end mental health stigma and so for the moment, it’s business as usual. We will update this as soon as we have a further announcement.
