Tyne sponsors healthy minds

[ March 4, 2020   //   ]

The Port of Tyne is sponsoring Northumberland Mind’s Healthy Body, Healthy Mind Community Sessions, which help people to access wellbeing and resilience sessions, workshops and activities within their local community. The funding will enable Mind to deliver sessions through to October 2021.

The port’s director of human resources and communications Louise Tinkler, said “The Port of Tyne is committed to supporting its local community, and we hope that the sessions will help vulnerable or socially-isolated people within the community to thrive.”

Since 2007, the port has supported over 680 organisations, engaging with more than 680,000 people.

Earlier, the port announced that it is funding a South Tyneside Bright Futures, which supports over 30 young mums and mums-to-be through its groups in Jarrow and West Harton.

Tyne has also retained its Better Health at Work Continuing Excellence Award for the second year running. Established to recognise the efforts of employers in the North East and Cumbria, the scheme highlights the importance of a healthy workforce.
