About us

Who we are

The Charlie Waller Trust was created by the Waller family in 1997 in response to the loss of their son and brother Charlie who tragically took his own life whilst suffering from depression.

We have since become one of the UK’s most respected mental health charities for children and young people. Our overarching mission is to educate young people and those with responsibility for them - parents and carers, teachers, college and university staff, and employers - about children and young people’s mental health and wellbeing.

Our culture and values

The Charlie Waller Trust is a great place to work. We care about mental health and wellbeing in our team and have a positive, enabling workplace culture. Our values drive our work:

  • Warm: Positive personal connections are central to mental health; we aim to reflect that in all our relationships with beneficiaries, supporters, staff and volunteers.
  • Empowering: We support all those we work with, and who work for us, to use their minds, hearts, energy and creativity to fulfil their potential.
  • Collaborative: Partnership and cooperation are at the core of our work; we seek the views of those we wish to support and aim to put them at the centre of our activity.
  • Compassionate: We recognise vulnerability in ourselves and others, especially where there is more than one reason people may be vulnerable to mental health problems, discrimination or inequality.
  • Open: We believe in being honest about the way we work, our aspirations and where we need to improve; openness and good communication are key to good mental health.

Equality, diversity and inclusion policy

We are committed to equity, diversity and inclusion and are working to ensure that our staff represent the communities we aim to support. We activity utilise positive action as set out in the Equalities Act (2010) to ensure we attract and recruit candidates from backgrounds and groups that are currently underrepresented in our workforce. We therefore particularly encourage applications from men and non-binary folk, and those from Black, Asian and minoritised backgrounds.

When we recruit, we will ask all our shortlisted candidates to tell us about any reasonable adjustments they need. Our current office is only accessible via a flight of stairs. We would of course discuss home-based working and holding team meetings in an accessible location as appropriate.
