MHFA England CIC
MHFA England was developed and launched in 2006 in England by the Department of Health. In September 2009 we became registered as a Community Interest Company (registration no. 7021392). Our Company is limited by guarantee (ie has no shareholders), and is at the heart of a network growing across England. We are also part of an expanding international movement around the world, currently involving 16 countries. Please click here to see our Statement of Community Interest. (PDF opens in new window)
A community interest company is one that:
"seeks to operate for the benefit of the community rather than for its owners, it cannot be formed for the benefit of the owners of the company or other such group. All assets and profits must be used for the community that is specified. This can be through allocating profits or providing services. All CIC's must meet a "Community Interest Test" to become one."
The community interest that is core to our business is to 'increase mental health literacy of the whole population!'
MHFA England is overseen by a small board and employs 4 people. Please click here to see our Equality and Diversity Policy. (PDF opens in new window). MHFA is proud to follow the Mindful Employer Charter. For a copy of our complaints procedure please click here (PDF opens in new window)
