Identity Consult chooses a charitable cause each year to support, and over the last 12 months we have been fundraising for Mind - for better mental health.
If you, or anyone you know, needs information or support, either for their own mental health, or to help support others going through a tough time, Mind have a huge range of guidance and tips - see https://www.mind.org.uk/
Since April 2019 we have raised over £10,000 for Mind, through various activities including bake sales and a sponsored event to tackle the via-ferrata at Honister Slate Mine - don't look down!
We chose to support Mind due to the shocking statistics around mental health and suicide in the construction industry and hope to have made a small difference by raising funds and awareness for the support that is available.
As well as fundraising, we have re-vamped our internal policies and now have trained mental health first aiders in each of our offices, for anyone who is struggling to have a confidential chat with.
As the end of the year is approaching, we have chosen another worthy cause to support this year, so look out for further information coming soon as to who we will be supporting over the next 12 months.
