Below are details of Spark UK, an amazing charity doing amazing things:

Spark UK is an award-winning mental health organisation run by young people for young people.

Their aim is to ‘Spark the conversation around mental health’ by creating a range of resources, lessons and campaigns for approximately 300 schools across the UK.

Run entirely by teenagers, the organisation aims to spark important conversations around wellbeing and mental health in a relatable, informative and engaging way. Spark creates free-to-use lessons for both primary and secondary schools on important topics like Gratitude, Anxiety and Self Care.

Working with Devon-based Illustrators, Flossy & Jim, they have created eight quick self-care acts to support young people and families to look after their mental health.

They have also partnered with other organisations such as BAFTA, Ootiboo and Mind. Spark UK also runs All Star Advent, an annual campaign inviting celebrities to talk about mental health for charity.

Each day in December celebrities including Dame Judi Dench, Bear Grylls and Stephen Fry recorded mental health tips of the day to raise money for numerous charities. The campaign has received national acclaim and attention including features in The Metro, BBC, Sky and The Guardian.

Spark UK was founded in December 2020 by Conor Warren, a now 18-year old, mental health advocate, public speaker and A-Level student. The team also consists of Bridie Downing, Joseph Carter, Tegan Phillips, Noah McNamara and Kaia Bond. For more information on Spark UK, head to or follow them on Instagram
