Bruntwood has joined forces with Everton in the Community to support its Girls on Side programme.
The family-owned business, which creates, owns and manages office, retail and innovation spaces across Liverpool, Cheshire, Manchester, Leeds and Birmingham, has become an Official Supporter Partner of the women’s only mental wellbeing programme.
Girls on Side delivers inclusive activities in a safe and welcoming environment for like-minded women to learn new skills, make friends and become more physically active. The partnership will see Everton in the Community work closely with Bruntwood to help it fulfil and develop its health and wellbeing commitment and provide volunteering opportunities to staff in a number of the charity’s programmes.
Reflecting on the new partnership, Everton in the Community Living Well Coordinator John Bilsborrow said: “This is a fantastic opportunity to work with a renowned community-minded organisation in Bruntwood and with their support we will be able to further develop our Girls on Side programme to continue to reach out and support women living with poor mental health.”
Colin Forshaw, Regional Director at Bruntwood, said: “As a business that is rooted in its local communities, we are proud and excited to enter into partnership with Everton in the Community, an organisation whose values align closely with our own.
“Girls on Side is an excellent grassroots project that supports women’s mental health and provides opportunities for women, particularly those from more deprived backgrounds, to access help and enjoy new activities. I know my colleagues across Bruntwood are looking forward to volunteering their time and skills to benefit this important community organisation.”
