Thrive LDN support the British Inspiration Trust (BRIT) and our BRIT 2021 Challenge
We are delighted to have forged a special relationship with Thrive LDN who are supporting BRIT and championing the BRIT 2021 Challenge.
Our aspiration is that every university and college in London enters teams in the BRIT 2021 Challenge so that every student and staff member has the opportunity to participate. We are sincerely grateful to Dan Barrett, Director at Thrive LDN, and James Ludley, Communications Lead, for all their support and enthusiasm to help encourage universities and colleges in London to take part.
“Thrive LDN is proud to champion the BRIT 2021 Challenge; an inspiring initiative to support and improve the mental health and fitness of young adults in the UK. Despite COVID-19 restrictions, we know universities, colleges and student unions are finding creative ways to engage students and staff who are working remotely – which is more important than ever.
The BRIT 2021 Challenge allows organisations and teams to participate in their own unique way. It is an inspiring challenge that is helping raise positive awareness of mental health and suicide prevention.
It was great to see so many students and staff at universities and colleges in London take part in The BRIT 2020 Row Britannia Challenge and I would encourage every London university, college and student union to register for the BRIT 2021 Challenge and invite all their students and staff to take part. Good luck to all London participants!”
Thrive LDN is a citywide movement to improve the mental health and wellbeing of all Londoners. It is supported by the Mayor of London and led by the London Health Board partners. Two million Londoners experience some form of poor mental health every year and Londoners’ life satisfaction and feelings of self-worth are lower than the national average. Thrive LDN was established in response to this, with the aim of reducing the number of Londoners affected by poor mental health. In 2019, more than 200,000 people took part in events and activities to improve mental health and tackle inequalities as part of the Thrive LDN movement.
