Rainbow Minds is a weekly open house for members of the LGBTQ+ community who have mental health needs or who are lonely or isolated. We meet from 5.30-7.30pm every Wednesday at the Wellbeing Centre in Sharrow and it's a relaxed and popular space, with staff and volunteers on hand to support attendees.

We've launched this appeal, to raise enough funds to keep the group going through 2025 - we've estimated that cost to be £2,200 and we're asking you for your help!

Would you be willing to help by donating? Every pound will make a difference.

If you're a member of an LGBTQ+ group, can you hold a fundraiser with your colleagues? We've got plenty of fundraising ideas and we're happy to help - just email [email protected] and entitle your email Rainbow Minds Appeal.

If you're an individual supporter, could you donate £5, £10, or £20? (Remember to gift aid, if you're a UK taxpayer). 

Or, you could help us by playing the Rainbow Lottery. 

We're registered with the Rainbow Lottery, which is a weekly lottery that raises money for good causes in the LGBTQ+ community.

Tickets for the lottery cost just £1 a week. Each ticket has a 1 in 50 chance to win a prize each week, with a top prize of £25,000!  There's a draw every Saturday night and in addition to possibly winning the jackpot, you can also nominate Sheffield Mind as your chosen charity, so we get a percentage of every ticket you buy!

You can donate here on our website or you can drop into our office during opening hours. If you want to discuss the Rainbow Minds appeal, or any of our fundraising, you can email us: [email protected] 

Thank you!
