Washington Mind is coordinating a Time to Change organic hub, hosted by Sunderland City Council and funded by Public Health. The hub covers Sunderland, Washington and the Coalfields.

About the hub…

Sunderland’s Hub partners include:

  • Gentoo
  • Grace House
  • City hospitals
  • Sunderland People First
  • University of Sunderland
  • IMPACT North East

Partners work together to deliver their own anti-stigma campaigning activities. These support schools, workplaces and communities to take action.


Improving the health and wellbeing of local communities as well as tackling stigma and discrimination is a strategic priority for all our partners; becoming a Time to Change Hub gives them the opportunity to achieve this.

Time to Change Hub partners demonstrate their commitment to:

  • Putting people with personal experience of mental health problems at the heart of their work
  • Embedding anti-stigma and discrimination work locally, whether that be schools, workplaces or other community settings
  • Proactively campaigning to improve people’s attitudes and behaviors towards mental health
