Register for the organisational pledge
It’s great news that your organisation would like to step up to end stigma by signing a pledge. Here’s how you do it…
Let us know that you are working towards the pledge by providing us with your details.
You should find the action plan a useful way of setting out your goals, or recording your achievements so far. Make sure the activity you plan is realistic and manageable – at the same time it’s good to aim high. It could be useful to think of all the different roles your organisation has, and the different groups you have contact with. How can you engage these individuals and groups in challenging stigma? You'll find tips and examples of activities in our action plan guide.
When you’re ready, submit your action plan. We will aim to get back to you within 14 days to agree your plan. You will also be given the option to invite one of our team members to a public pledge signing and/or order a larger pledge board for display purposes.
Stepping up to sign a pledge is a public commitment, so we would like a senior representative from your organisation to publicly sign your pledge certificate/board. To get maximum impact we advise that you arrange to sign the pledge at an event your organisation is already planning, such as a board meeting, AGM, conference or launch event.
If you would like a Time to Change Wales representative to attend your event, and would like a pledge board to display in the workplace, please complete our pledge event planning form and return it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Now comes the hard work – putting your pledge into action! This is down to your organisation, but we are always here to support you. Depending on what is in your action plan, we may also be able to put you in touch with organisations who can provide mental health training or other resources. Don’t forget, you can also find useful information for employers on our website, download resources or order some campaign materials.
It’s your organisation's responsibility to deliver your action plan and monitor how it’s going. Evaluation can be useful to see what’s working well, what needs to be improved and to get support internally to do more. Let us know if you have experienced any challenges or particular successes in delivering your action plan.
