Giving back to the Community in Birmingham
To give back to our local community in Birmingham, West 1 has partnered with Better Pathways as our charity to support.
Better Pathways is a mental health charity supporting people with poor mental health, learning difficulties and with disabilities, on their pathway to recovery.
“We know well that lack of work is a major burden for people with mental health problems and learning disabilities. This deprives people of opportunities and contributes to stigma, poverty, achievement, social contact and the ability to structure their time. Over 90% of people with serious mental health problems are unemployed and research shows that work improves symptoms and quality of life.”
To help Better Pathways on their mission, West 1 will renovate their kitchen area to create a rentable space and offer H&S training for 12 delegates to encourage further education and provide skills for their journey back to work.
