Local engineering firm Lindhurst Engineering have chosen Ashfield Citizens Advice as their charity of the year.
This is part of the Corporate Champions Programme launched at March’s Mansfield and Ashfield 2020 breakfast meeting by Ashfield Citizens Advice.
The scheme identifies many ways businesses can support Citizens Advice but also provides help, advice and support to employees who may not be able to access face to face advice during working hours. Ashfield Citizens Advice can provide an on site advice through their mobile unit and have also partnered up with Mind to provide mental health support and training as part of the Workforce Welfare element of the Champion partnership
Martin Rigley MBE – MD at Lindhurst explains, “Many of our employees have needed advice at some point in their life, so we really value the work that Citizens Advice do and want to support them with our charitable activity. Part of our competitive offering in business is to have a happy, dedicated and healthy workforce, in partnership with Ashfield Citizens Advice we can offer an on site advice session including mental health, pension and general advice to help anyone who needs it.”
Kathryn Stacey CEO at Citizens Advice explains, “We are delighted that Lindhurst Engineering have committed to the Corporate Champion partnership and Workforce Welfare scheme. One of our targets is to reach out to those people who are in work who may not be able to access help. We hope that many more companies in Ashfield will take up this opportunity and engage with us through the partnership.”
Encourages local businesses to exercise their charitable activity around the work of Citizens Advice; as part of that arrangement employees benefit from on site advice on a range of different issues without having to leave work or take time off.
