We first partnered with Jigsaw in 2018 and have pledged to raise €1million, as well as increasing vital awareness, for youth mental health in Ireland. To date, we have raised over €1.4m for Jigsaw.
Through this partnership, we want to positively contribute to the communities in which we live and operate. We have already achieved so much. We have funded new innovative programs and delivered national campaigns to support young people, and promote youth mental health, including;
- OneGoodSchoolTM - We have committed all of our funds raised to Jigsaw’s national One Good School TM programme, supporting the mental health and wellbeing of young people by developing a shared responsibility for mental health across the whole school community.
- OneGoodAdult® – Each year in the lead up to World Mental Health Day in October, we have prioritised raising awareness of the role adults can all play in supporting youth mental health and how the power of listening can support a young person close to you, more than you know. This message has been prioritised through our stores, products and communications.
- OneGoodClub TM In association with the Ladies Gaelic Football Association (LGFA) we rolled out the pilot One Good ClubTM programme and are aiming for national roll-out in the coming months. So far we have 4 clubs accredited, 26 clubs selected for next phase, one in every county in the republic.
- OneGoodManagerTM - We rolled out a series of mental health talks and workshops to Lidl colleagues.
But we need you, now more than ever…
Because Jigsaw need all our help now more than ever to support young people, their parents, family members, friends, teachers, coaches and communities facing this mental health crisis.
The impacts of the pandemic have left millions of us without the core things we value for our mental wellbeing. A hug, a conversation, a walk in the park. Meeting friends. Jigsaw makes a big difference every day by being there for young people through their wide range of supports and services.
Jigsaw are here to help and support young people and their families through challenging times. But demand for their services continues to grow and we in Lidl are supporting Jigsaw to be ready to meet it. We need you to join with us too, so we can all be there for our young people, now more than ever.
