nmcn & Mind announce charity partnership

12th November 2019

We are delighted to announce we have selected Mind, the leading mental health charity in England and Wales as our first ever corporate charity partner.

The three-year charity partnership will support our commitment to improve mental wellbeing for our colleagues and our communities.  We will support Mind throughout the partnership by engaging colleagues and clients in a range of fundraising activities.

Who are Mind?

Mind provide advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem. They campaign to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding. The charity supported over 118,000 people across England and Wales last year through helpline queries alone.

Our fundraising support will help Mind deliver their vital services, some of which include; a legal advice line, the Infoline, information and advice on mental health on the Mind website and their peer-support network Elefriends.

Why Mind?

The construction industry is highly reported as having one of the poorest levels of mental health in the country.

We want to be part of making a change in our industry. We believe in a workplace where everyone can thrive and having a positive impact in this area can make a difference to people and our communities.

Good mental health at work and good management go hand in hand and there is strong evidence that workplaces with high levels of mental wellbeing are safer, happier and more productive.

What they said:

Emma Ihsan, Head of Corporate Partnerships at Mind, said: “We’re so delighted that nmcn PLC have chosen to partner with us over the next three years. The money they raise will help to fund our vital services including Mind’s Infoline and the campaigning we do to ensure that the one in four of us who experience a mental health problem every year gets the support and respect we deserve.”

Mark Mason, Group QESH Director added “At nmcn, we are fully committed to protecting the physical and mental health of our colleagues. Addressing challenges around Mental Health is a key element of our Positive Impact Plan 2025 and aligns with our commitment to support our people to ensure they thrive.

We are looking forward to working with Mind to tackle the stigma around mental health within our industry, as we continue to raise awareness and improve mental health and wellbeing for our people and our communities now and in the future.
