East Midlands Chamber has partnered with Loates Workplace Wellbeing

East Midlands Chamber has partnered with Loates Workplace Wellbeing, a leading HR, training, and wellbeing consultancy, to provide mental health courses accredited by MHFA England.

The collaboration is being launched during Mental Health Awareness Week and will provide Chamber members with access to mental health first-aider training, either in person or online.

The courses help delegates gain the knowledge and skills to spot signs of people experiencing poor mental health, be confident enough to start a conversation and signpost a person to appropriate support.​

The initiative reinforces East Midland's Chamber CSR commitment, as courses are provided in partnership with regional charities across the East Midlands.

Since 2022, Loates Workplace Wellbeing has provided complimentary MHFA training for Derby County Community Trust, Nottinghamshire Hospice, and, from 2024, Rainbows Hospice in Leicestershire.

Annie Litchfield from Loates Workplace Wellbeing said,

“The charity partnerships foster a culture of wellbeing in the workplace while raising awareness of the valuable work and vital services each charity undertakes”.

Hollie Anderson, Communications & Marketing Manager at Nottinghamshire Hospice, said,

"The collaboration with Loates Workplace Wellbeing has enabled us to raise the profile of Nottinghamshire Hospice among a wider group of organisations. By offering their Mental Health First Aid courses in our training room, we provide essential training to our team and showcase the hospice's vital work to a broader audience."

Vicki Thompson, Head of Leadership & Training Programmes at East Midlands Chamber, said,

"We see this as a natural extension to the broad training programme we already offer. The mental health first aider courses can also be booked by businesses as an in-house course".
