Our Time charity helps children and young people who live with, and sometimes care for, a parent with a mental illness. There are up to 3 million children in this situation in the UK but there is no policy or support for them, despite their vulnerability. We came a registered charity in 2012, governed by a board of 12 trustees from a variety of backgrounds, including experts by experience and past beneficiaries. We have developed innovative ways of helping these children and the family, which are low cost, and delivered locally in partnership with local health and social care providers. We are specialists and thought leaders in our field and are the only charity working specificially with this large, but hidden group. We are led by our community with whom we have designed all our interventions.
