Powerful Connection as Omagh-based Powergrid Civils Supports Action Mental Health’s work with children and young people in the local area

Omagh-based Powergrid Civils (PGC), the specialist engineering and consultancy company operating throughout the UK and Ireland, have just announced a partnership with Action Mental Health, which will help support the charity’s vital work in local schools and community groups.

Founded in 2012, the company has built an enviable reputation for their corporate social responsibility when it comes to supporting local communities through donations, sponsorship and time. As a result of this partnership, Action Mental Health will now be able to expand their delivery of mental health programmes to children and young people across Co. Tyrone, helping them reach many more schools and community groups. One of the schools involved is Omagh Integrated Primary School, where pupils will take part in the charity’s Little Healthy Me and Healthy Me programmes which are vibrant and engaging mental health promotion programmes, designed specifically for primary school children.

Lisa Colton, Managing Director, said, “We recognise how difficult it is for charities to raise funds to support the great work they deliver in our communities.  We feel proud that our business is in a position to support Action Mental Health in the delivery of their mental health programmes to our local schools and community groups”.

Michael McClean Project Worker at Action Mental Health said: “We are delighted that as a direct result of our partnership with Powergrid Civils we can now reach even more children and young people in Omagh and across Co Tyrone. with our invaluable range of mental health programmes. It is so vital that we equip the younger generation with the skills and knowledge that they need to deal with the inevitable challenges they will face growing up, and indeed right throughout life.”
