According to official figures, 127 million hours of work were lost in 2015 due to mental health absenteeism.
With anxiety, stress and depression being the principal reasons, the number of days taken off is reportedly increasing 25% year-on-year.
Good mental health in the workforce is considered ‘very important’† to employers.
Partnering with a charity that supports those struggling at work and those ready for employment, demonstrates your commitment to good mental health in the workplace.
By supporting innercycle, you could fulfil your own organisation's social responsibility aims, whilst enhancing staff morale and retention.
We will work with you to ensure that your brand and team gain from partnering, with benefits for everyone.

Charity of the year:
Many businesses now choose one main charity to support over a specific period, usually one to two years. It’s a great way of encouraging team building and having fun.
Support can range from participating in open charity events like cycle rides and marathons, to running cake sales at work and hosting fundraising functions.
We welcome the opportunity of discussing a programme with you that would meet your specific needs and objectives.
Making us your Charity of the Year could help:
- Show your organisation’s commitment to fostering positive mental health in the workplace and openness to discussing it
- Encourage team spirit and boost staff morale
- Educate workers in the proven positive mental and physical health benefits of cycling
- Create positive news stories for regional and national PR exposure and social media content

Custom: Your organisation could get creative with your own challenge, if options listed here aren't quite hitting the spot. Events at home or overseas – running a company ‘bake-off’ or a dance competition – let's work together on ideas, to find the ideal fit! Get in touch>
Could your brand benefit from being aligned with a charity that undertakes practical support for positive mental health?
Many staff members, particularly 'millennials', are receptive to charitable giving. Increasingly, people want to work for organisations that give something back, paying more than lip service to making a difference in the world.
We can work with you to develop a programme that includes sponsor advertising of our community roadshow vehicles.
