A constructive and open dialogue on Mental Health and Wellbeing is embedded within the culture of UKGI.

A number of steps have been taken to build and maintain a positive Mental Health and Wellbeing culture, such as training volunteers to become Mental Health First Aiders, targeted objectives and training for line managers delivered by Mind, awareness-raising activities and signing the Time to Change pledge to demonstrate commitment to fighting stigma about mental ill-health.

UKGI’s Mental Health and Wellbeing Group continue to ensure the wellbeing of all employees is central to the organisation’s agenda.


UKGI is proud of what its employees have gone on to achieve; the network and experience gained at UKGI is beneficial to a career in either the public or private sector. UKGI’s alumni network allows us to stay in touch with this incredibly diverse group of former colleagues and bring them together with current employees for events, seminars, mentoring opportunities and sharing of case studies.
