In memory of Charlie Watkins


Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

The Watkins Family have chosen to create the Charlie Watkins Foundation within Essex Community Foundation. The foundation honours the memory of Charlie by providing vital grant funding to help assist young people with mental health issues across the country.  

The crisis in mental health among young adults and the impact of the necessary restrictions to control the virus has seen an exponential growth in mental health issues; in particular, for young people and students across the country. Online tuition combined with missing family and a loss of in-person social interaction has had a huge impact on their mental health and feelings of isolation. For those already struggling, COVID-19 intensified these feelings and for those who had not previously experienced anxiety or depression, it has been a strange and very worrying time. All this at a time when raising funds presents its own very real challenges and our support is needed more than ever.

To help to address the seriousness of the situation of the growing crisis in mental health among young adults, 2021 will see us increase our support nationwide to grow the reach and impact of young adult mental health support services.

We are tremendously grateful for all donations and to you for your support during these challenging times, especially at a time when it has never been needed more. Thank you.
