We’re delighted to confirm that we are now a fully certified Mental Health First Aid provider.
Our Managing Director Joanne Race and Regional Manager Jackie Plumb have both qualified as Mental Health First Aiders, with certification from Mental Health First Aid England.
“We take the mental health and well being of our staff and clientele very seriously and feel that full accreditation with MHFA England demonstrates our full commitment,” said Joanne.
“We are a young team and also many of our tenants are young people. Many of whom have never been away from home before and who may, therefore, be feeling both lonely and vulnerable.
“We now feel that we are better equipped to offer a better level of understanding and support where it is needed.
“Having achieved this goal, we are also now working towards being recognised as a Mindful Employer, which means we will be better able to offer support for staff who experience stress, anxiety, depression or other mental health conditions.”
