Approximately 1 in 4 people in the UK will experiences a mental health problem each year, and 1 in 6 people experience common mental health problems in any given week. We firmly believe in taking care of the mental health of our employees and supporting the wider community in any way we can.

Each month we ask our whole team to make a donation which the company will match. Then one winner every month has the opportunity to pick a charity that’s close to their heart to donate to.

This month, Dorset Mind was selected by Recruitment Consultant, Jack Nantais. £250 has been donated to the mental health charity in his name.
