FAQs

What makes The Sophie Clarke Foundation different to other mental health charities and how are donations used?

The Foundation itself is run by Sophie's family and friends and has no employees or related costs. All funds raised for The Sophie Clarke Foundation are congregated to support carefully selected mental health charities, enabling us to work directly with and financially support these charities to make a real difference. Whether this is funding a specific initiative or need they have, or working together to come up with new and effective ways of joining the battle against mental health challenges, suicide and stigma.

 

What sort of charities does The Sophie Clarke Foundation work with? 

We’re always looking for new charities to work with, particularly those that are taking a proactive, imaginative and unconventional approach to mental health support and management. With Sophie as our inspiration, we are eager to work with charities that facilitate and honour all that she was passionate about, such as fitness, yoga, art, nutrition and much more.
