This year, in addition to the Middle Temple Scholarship Fund Appeal, we will be raising money for Heads Together, with your generous donations equally split between these good causes.

The Middle Temple Scholarship Fund Appeal. Middle Temple has been awarding scholarships on a substantial basis since 1877. The Inn’s primary purpose is to ensure that those individuals of real ability (and whom the Inn believes can succeed in the profession) are not precluded from coming to the Bar by a lack of financial resources.

Heads Together is a campaign spearheaded by The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry to change the national conversation on mental health and wellbeing. It is a partnership with inspiring charities with decades of experience in tackling stigma, raising awareness, and providing vital help for people with mental health challenges.

Through Heads Together, Their Royal Highnesses are keen to continue to build on the great work that is already taking place across the country, to ensure that people feel comfortable with their everyday mental wellbeing, feel able to support their friends and families through difficult times, and that stigma no longer prevents people getting help they need.

They are privileged to be working with partner charities who have achieved so much in tackling stigma, raising awareness, and providing vital help for people with mental health challenges. The team of charity partners working on Heads Together covers a wide range of mental health issues that are close to The Duke and Duchess and Prince Harry’s passions.
