London Southend Airport announce chrity partnership with South East and Central Essex Mind (SECE MIND)
Over the past ten years the London Southend Airport Community Team has raised over £65k for numerous local charities and organisations.
Under our new Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) framework, which is focused on employment, education and community care, London Southend Airport has stepped away from its previous approach to giving, to build a partnership with one local charity for a period of up to two years.
London Southend Airport is pleased to be partnered with South East and Central Essex Mind (SECE MIND). The two-year partnership commenced 13th July 2021 and forms part of the airport’s ‘Connecting Communities’ commitment.
This partnership builds on the progress that London Southend Airport has already made, previously introducing a Blue Band Scheme, therapy dogs, ‘AirPaws’ and working with Southend Dementia Action Alliance to create a welcoming environment for passengers with non-visible disabilities, such as anxiety and other mental health conditions. SECE Mind is a mental health charity offering information and advice to people with mental health problems whilst lobbying government and local authorities on their behalf.
