ECC Proud to Announce Mid & North East Essex Mind as our Nominated Charity of the Year 2024


Essex Chambers of Commerce are delighted to announce that we will be working with Mid & North East Essex Mind as our nominated charity for 2024. Every year Essex Chambers selects a charity to champion and support through our events programme and other fundraising efforts. The services offered by the charity are vitally important to ensure that anyone in the region impacted by poor mental health gets the support they need.

Now, more than ever, it is clear there must be a greater understanding around mental health, especially in the workplace. Employers have a responsibility to ensure their workers feel supported and can access the right help when needed. Mid & North East Essex Mind offer this support to individuals as well as providing award winning training on workplace wellbeing for employers.

An independent mental health charity, the team at Mid & North East Essex Mind work in partnership with other local Minds, NHS and health services, as well as key community organisations and service providers, to reduce health inequalities. Whether a person is stressed, depressed or in crisis their services offer help and support whilst also always respecting the wishes of the individual.

Ginny Idehen, CEO, Mid and North East Essex Mind said:

“We’re really pleased to be chosen as Essex Chamber of Commerce’s charity of the year. It is fantastic they have recognised the importance of good mental health in the workplace and want to support their members. We’ve been members for the past two years, and we’re really looking forward to working more closely with the organisation to promote awareness of good mental health across the business sector.”

Denise Rossiter, CEO of Essex Chambers of Commerce said:

“With the stresses and anxieties prevalent in our modern world we are proud to be able to champion the vital work the charity provides to the people of Tendring, Colchester, Maldon, Braintree, and Chelmsford districts. This partnership is particularly important given the pressures faced by businesses in recent turbulent times. We look forward to working with Mid & North East Essex Mind in the coming months.”
