14 members of staff at Skipton Intermediaries have joined together to support Birmingham MIND.
The intermediary relationship managers (IRM) from across the UK came together to provide a helping hand at a local care home. Colleagues spent a day painting several rooms at Charles Davis House residential home, in Horley, including a communal room, bedroom and bathroom.
Charles Davis House is a residential home which provides vital support to 13 adults experiencing mental health problems. This is run by Birmingham MIND, the largest independent mental health charity in the area, which offers a range of high quality services including; residential care, recovery services and a free wellbeing service – amongst many other things.
Mitchell Jackson, the intermediary relationship manager who organised the event, said; “I have volunteered for a number of charities over the years and I was presented with the opportunity to organise an activity to help a local charity in my region. I chose Birmingham MIND as mental health is a real focus at the moment, as a society we need to address this stigma that it has and acknowledge that it is a real illness.
“I am really proud of all my colleagues, who embraced the project. Being able to give something back to the community like this really is something worthwhile. I feel that we have added real value to Charles Davis House and have helped to make it a home away from home for their residents.”
