EMS are an environmental consultancy, providing asbestos & geotechnical services. EMS is based in Rotherwas, South Hereford and our work takes us throughout the UK and Europe.
EMS chose to support Herefordshire Mind because of the fantastic work they do throughout the local community in Herefordshire. Director for the companies, Jamie Perkins-Best, described the commitment as: ‘a partnership to encourage the awareness of mental health as being as important as physical health. I know that for many of our staff the cause is very close to their hearts, which is why we wanted to work with Hereford Mind’.
Herefordshire Mind provides quality support to people experiencing and recovering from mental health problems, whilst raising awareness and promoting understanding about mental health issues. The charity runs a variety of services throughout Herefordshire, including groups, courses, community support and residential care. They believe in finding positive ways to make people feel valued and to enable them to live the lives they want, as fully as possible.
2018 marks Herefordshire Mind’s 40th Birthday, which they are celebrating throughout the year. Most recently, they ran a successful concert at St. John’s Methodist Church, Hereford and are currently putting together plans for a community art project at the Ledbury Poetry Festival in July, plus much more yet to be announced.
EMS have shown their support through an initial donation and a pledge to support Herefordshire Mind in its 40th Birthday year through continuing fundraising efforts throughout the year.
