Charity adds Tesco and NatWest to ever growing list of supporters

Regional charity Student Life has once again shown its growing, national reputation by receiving backing from Tesco and NatWest.

Tesco has recognised Student Life through its ‘Bags of Help’ Grants Programme and NatWest established contact with the Charity just before the festive break, to initiate a collaboration over young people’s education around their finances.

“The funding from Tesco is huge recognition of our work with training young people to be more aware of their – and their peers’ – mental health” said Student Life’s CEO Richard Stewart.  “This training forms part of our Mental Health Ambassador project in Suffolk schools and colleges and is another stride in the direction of making Student Life’s young person’s mental health awareness training, the go-to training for every education setting in the county”.

“The initial contact last month from NatWest was part of our ongoing work with Samaritans nationally” explained Richard.  “Samaritans had enthused to NatWest about the collaborative work of our young steering group on Samaritans’ national self-harm campaign and suggested that NatWest contacted us for assistance on their national 2021 campaign on young people’s money management.  We are taking the collaboration further in January and hope to have a first version of a campaign brief by the end of the month”.
