Inspired by the desire to help others, especially after the challenges of the pandemic, Swansea-based risk management company PCR Global is donating the profits of its Mental Health First Aid Course to Tŷ Hafan, explains Steffan Rogers, Director of Customer Assurance.

PCR Global is a risk management company, delivering consultancy and training services in a range of areas including first aid, health and safety, construction, environmental and security.

The whole team at PCR Global are proud to support Tŷ Hafan, a leading Welsh children’s charity. When we learned that it costs over £4 million each year for Tŷ Hafan to provide specialist care and outreach services to children and young people with a life-limiting condition, and their families, and that Tŷ Hafan only receives around 5% in statutory funding towards this figure, we knew we really wanted to help.

The pandemic has affected so many people and as a company we feel it is an important time to reach out in as many areas we can.

Our company was established on three key core values: professionalism, credibility and resilience. By ensuring that these values are embedded within the strategic, tactical and operational levels of our own business, it is our main aim to help instil the same values to each organisation who require our support.

We really want to make a difference in the community and support mental health, so this is why we decided to donate the profits of our Metal Health First Aid course to Tŷ Hafan.

The 12 hour Adult Mental Health First Aid (Wales) course teaches adults how to provide mental health first aid to friends, families and co-workers. Participants on this course gain improved knowledge of mental illnesses and their interventions, knowledge of appropriate first aid strategies, and confidence in helping individuals experiencing a mental health problem.
