Since 1989, VITAL (formerly Bradford & Airedale Mental Health Advocacy Group) have given a voice to the people of Bradford, Airedale, Wharfedale and Craven, struggling with their mental health.

We aim to ensure that the vulnerable and disadvantaged have a voice within the health and social framework, whilst they are supported by our experts by experience.

With your help, we will continue to deliver this support.

We rely on the generosity of those who are passionate about mental health.

VITAL will continue to campaign for mental and physical health to be viewed equally. We will also work hard to create a society where judgmental attitudes, discrimination and social isolation are eradicated from the lives of those facing mental ill health or who feel vulnerable due to  other factors including older age, trauma, and illness.

By remembering VITAL in your Will, your incredible gift, whatever size, will transform the lives of many across the region and give them the chance they so desperately deserve – now and for many years to come.



If you would like to leave a gift in your Will to support VITAL, we would recommend that you consult a solicitor who can advise on wording to ensure that your wishes are carried out exactly as you want them to be.

You will need to take the following details with you:

VITAL, 1st Floor, Tradeforce Building, Cornwall Place, Bradford, BD8 7JT

Registered charity number 1155071


We have different ways for your family and friends to donate as a replacement to flowers, in memory of your loved one: 

  • Donation envelopes can be used at your loved ones funeral service or wake. Using the envelopes will allow us to claim gift aid where possible, meaning that your donations go even further. Alternatively, if you would like to collect cash donations, we can provide you with collection buckets. To request envelopes or collection buckets, please email [email protected] or call Tracy on 01274 770118.
  • Speaking to your funeral director - all you will need to do is let them know that you wish to support VITAL in memory of your loved one and they'll organise this for you. Your funeral director will administer and forward all donations to us either by depositing the money into our bank account or posting a cheque to: VITAL
  • Online - you can ask your friends and family to make a donation at or you could set-up a page in your loved one’s memory. The donations are processed directly into our bank account, so you do not have to worry about how the donations will get to us.
