Huddersfield-based PROHMS will provide two mental health referrals each month for a period of six months to clients of The Howarth Foundation who are being supported back into skills training and employment following chaotic lifestyles stemming from substance abuse, domestic violence and homelessness.

PROHMS will donate the time, delivering the referrals free of charge to The Howarth Foundation.

Sandra Babbings, CEO at PROHMS, said: “As a business, we are committed to giving back to our community and supporting others wherever possible.

“With mental health impacting so heavily on peoples’ lives, we hope that gifting this support will have a big impact on the general wellbeing of The Howarth Foundation’s clients and help them in their day to day lives.

“We will be offering referrals for individuals working with The Howarth Foundation that might need specialist mental health support. This could be one-off counselling sessions, somebody to talk to confidentially, assessments and signposting to other services, or providing short-term interventions and strategies that will hopefully enable the individual to better manage any symptoms, thoughts, and feelings they may be experiencing.”

The Cleckheaton-based Howarth Foundation was founded in 2017 and its Business Building Futures programme helps people who are homeless develop the skills and confidence they need to get back into employment.
