Become part of the Charlie Waller Trust team

The Charlie Waller Trust was created by the Waller family in 1997 in response to the loss of their son and brother Charlie to suicide having suffered from depression. We have since become one of the UK’s most respected mental health charities.

Our mission is to educate young people and those with responsibility for them - so parents and carers, teachers, college and university staff, employers, GPs and Practice Nurses - about their mental health and wellbeing.

Whether within our head office, or as part of our network of trainers, or as a volunteer, there may be opportunities for you join our team.
