We’ve selected Mind CHWF for a number of reasons: Mental Health is a subject that will touch us all in some form – directly or indirectly. Promoting good mental health and supporting one another during the more difficult times, has always been a very a prominent feature of the Platform Team.
Most of our team reside in the Hackney Borough. During 2020, we’ve seen the struggle and the increase in support needed amongst our community. Mind CHWF offer a multitude of free services: from 1-2-1 sessions, community support groups, to Company mental well being guidance and advocacy for individuals.
We’re all too aware that therapeutic treatments come at a cost and that lengthy NHS waiting lists often leave vulnerable people unsupported. Mind CHWF are enduring and unwavering in their support at every level for those who need it. During a time that we’ve not only seen a rise in the need support, but also an increase in waiting times and an overstretched NHS, Mind CHWF are stepping in to offer vital services.
For more information please visit https://www.mindchwf.org.uk/ – there will also be a Mind relevant to your location, if you should need it!
For now, please join us in our bid to give back if you’re able. Your support would mean a lot to our team!
PLEASE NOTE: When we hit £500 in donations, our lovely Director (Director Dan) and his Company (Invictus) will match it! We’re holding him to that, plus getting the drinks in when we’re done.
We’ll keep you updated as we go, but we will smash this target!
Animal Crossing became the top game of 2020. Who knew we needed it so much? First of all, my love for Animal Crossing knows no bounds. Since the UK went into lockdown in March, it’s all I’ve been doing with my life. This is the game that likely led to the Nintendo Switch console suddenly […]Read
2020 has been a game changer in many ways… but who would have predicted it would be the year that fashionistas and gamers became BFFs 4 lyfe? The once somewhat fraught relationship between fashion and gaming has changed dramatically over the last couple of years, but 2020 has officially made gaming internationally COOL. More than […]Read
Move over guys. Breaking boundaries and smashing stereotypes all of their own, that’s what Platform is all about and we have picked out the best of the best PLAYABLE female gaming characters, while avoiding the cliches of needing-a-man-to-save-her Princess Peach or born-into-privilege Lara Croft (she has a butler for goodness sake). Take a look at […]Read
Jobs are great, aren’t they? Well having money is, and having a job seems to be one of the few ways to actually earn cash nowadays so I guess we need them. But let’s be honest; no job is perfect, a few are faaar from perfect and working from home has only exasperated these problems […]Read

There are two schools of thought on Halloween costumes; those who think that it’s about taking everyday professions and putting the word “sexy” in front of them, and those that think that it’s about dressing as a hideous monster. At Platform, we fall very heavily into the latter category. To inspire your next costume please […]Read
Some people LOVE the sensation of feeling fear. Scientists understand our love of horror in all art forms as a way to experience that rush of dopamine that comes with a true scare whilst our brains understand that we are in no real danger. If only that were true for current times. Leave your newspapers […]Read
The Rule of 6 (and Borris) have made group hangs more challenging and a little less fun. But at Platform, we’re here to tell you that you can still experience the joy of (up to) six, safely. Two’s a company, three’s a crowd, and six is a squad perfect for video games. Online is fine […]Read
