You don’t have to go through this alone.
A Memory Space is your own, personal place to remember your loved one by raising money for Mind. It is free to set up and easy to use.
You might hear other charities talk about tribute funds - pages where you can raise money in honour of your loved one. Memory Space is Mind’s own tribute fund platform.
For nearly 75 years, Mind has worked to make mental health a priority and improve support in England and Wales. We won’t give up until everyone with a mental health problem gets support and respect. You can find loads more information on who we are and what we do online.
No - a Memory Space is free to set up.
It’s really easy to set up a Memory Space. Just go to the Memory Space homepage and click on ‘Create a Memory Space’. You’ll then be asked for a few details about yourself and your loved one and can personalise your page with photos and favourite memories.
Don’t worry, that’s okay. Simply choose from one of the photos already there. You can always add a photo later.
No, it’s optional to set a target. But pages with targets often raise more for their loved one. Your friends and family will want to help you reach your goal.
When you set up a Memory Space, you will have a unique ‘URL’ (a web page link) that you can forward to friends and family. If you’re comfortable doing so, we suggest sharing your page on social media.
If you’d like to change any of the photos or writing that you’ve included on your page, you just need to click ‘Edit my page’ after you log in.
