Why work for us?

Our values

Passion and purpose

We are passionate about improving mental health and motivated by our ability to make a difference for those most impacted by mental illness.


We will act with integrity.

​We will be objective and consistent in how we allocate funding and support.

​We will counter direct and indirect discrimination.


We value diversity of experience, expertise, and perspective. ​

We will build into our organisation, and every aspect of our work, a range of voices, including those of people who experience mental illness.


We care about maintaining high standards and improvement.

We will be open about where we could do better, learn from our successes and failures and expect those we work with to do the same.


We value relationships, and show appreciation for support we get in whatever form that takes.

We know that we influence change through the expertise and commitment of others.

What do our people enjoy about working here?

"Doing the job I love, knowing that the ultimate benefactors are those who are affected by poor mental health, a cause I am very passionate about. "

​"Doing the job I love, surrounded by some amazing kind people, the Team Maudsley Charity!"

"Being a very small team, I did not expect the level of commitment to investing in DEI in terms of recruitment and team training, and also in general the emphasis on continuous development and training."

​We are proud to be based in a very diverse London community, and want to build further on our connections to our community as well as our national partners. ​

Our staff team strive to make sure we are a welcoming workplace for all, and that we challenge ourselves and each other to take real and positive actions on diversity, equity and inclusion in our staff team and in our work - as well as signing up to the principles of this. ​
