Sedel-Collings Foundation

The Sedel-Collings Foundation was set up in 2006 by Rae Sedel and John Collings with a mission to empower and sustain vital community services – from supporting men’s mental health through to supporting women who have been victims of domestic violence.

This philanthropic organisation has partnered with Jersey Community Foundation (JCF) to support local charities and voluntary organisations.

Applications for the fund are considered within the Community Fund.

  • Supporting the supporters: Strengthening the capacity of charitable organisations by funding support for volunteers through safeguarding, support and supervision.

  • Youth mental health: Addressing mental health issues among children and young people, providing access to resources and support.

  • Men’s mental health: Focussing on mental health issues specific to men, providing tailored support and resources to improve their wellbeing.
