4D Data Centres has helped Suffolk Mind enhance its digital support offering.
As a member of the domain registry Nominet, 4D Data Centres has used the site’s GiveHub programme – which allows members to apply for a grant to support a charity of their choice – to help fund Suffolk Mind’s efforts to provide better digital support for those struggling with mental health.
Suffolk Mind provides support for everything from wellbeing to ‘severe and enduring’ mental ill-health, offering thousands of people information, help and skills to successfully manage their mental health.
The charity is looking to develop an e-learning platform to further its mission; in order to fully fund the platform’s development and launch, Suffolk Mind needed to raise £10,000. 4D Data Centres’ Chief Operating Officer Steve Wright selected the charity as the recipient of its GiveHub grant nomination, and Nominet has pledged the £10,000 required.
Wright said, “I’m excited that 4D is backing such an important cause. Once live, the platform will improve access to Suffolk Mind’s mental health support services nationally, so people looking for support will be able to easily access videos and content from their own homes without needing to attend face to face services in Suffolk.
“Even with the pandemic easing, people are likely to continue facing barriers when accessing face to face support. The e-learning platform will enable them to still get essential support whilst these restrictions remain. This project will enable people who may be vulnerable to access support from their homes during the pandemic, and beyond.”
