Recruitment company with a difference, Baltimore Consulting, are delighted to announce that we have donated £520 towards mental health charity partner, Bristol Mind throughout the fourth quarter in 2021.
The funds were donated based on placements made within the public sector across the quarter.
We are a bighearted business and have supported and directed our fundraising efforts to Cancer Research UK and local charity Bristol Mind, as our charities of choice in 2021 and will continue to do so throughout 2022.
This comes after Baltimore Consulting announce their partnership with Support Room as part of our continued commitment to our employees; allowing all employees the opportunity to access in-app therapy in your pocket, available for you to connect with at any time, in a way that works best for you.
Support Room is an on-demand online therapy platform whose goal is to improve the livelihoods of those suffering from symptoms of mental health issues. Employees receive support when they most need it, no more suffering in silence.
1 in 6 employees suffer with some form of mental health condition. From anxiety, through to depression, work is the main cause of stress and mental illness for today’s workforce over any other factor.
Charity contribution is an integral aspect of Baltimore Consulting’s business model and both of these causes are not only extremely close to CEO, Charmaine Vincent’s heart, but the wider business as well. Having completed a 100-mile challenge in 24 hours and a skydive, we are excited to increase our fundraising efforts in support of both charities.
These funds will make such an impact on the charity and in March this year, a number of employees will be embarking on a half marathon challenge to raise even more vital funds for mental health services around Bristol, including the charity’s inaugural MindLine. Each year over 3,500 people call the emotional helpline for support with costs £25 for a 30-minute call that can save a life. Our contribution will allow 21 of these calls to be made.
The decision to support local charity, Bristol Mind, was an easy one. Having regularly donated to the charity, their prominence and importance on society during these unprecedented times is ever more crucial and CEO, Charmaine Vincent recognises this. Charmaine has always offered additional support to her employees over the years, such as adjusting working hours and paying for private counselling sessions. Supporting wellbeing and aiding issues surrounding mental health has ensured that employees have a positive focus at work and a real support network for all staff.
Fundraising Coordinator, Leilah King states:
“A massive thank you to our partner Baltimore consulting for donating!
Donating £500 can support running our free refugee support group in Bristol Women Without Borders.
A donation like this can pay for training, English lessons and renting a safe space for refugee women to talk about their mental health and wellbeing.”
