Lovell will increase the provision of resources and advice to empower, build mental resilience and ensure both adults and children in the north west have access to tools that help them to thrive.
The housebuilder’s first action has been to create worksheets packed with practical tips for supporting mental health and wellbeing techniques. These will be made available to schools and residents from the communities that Lovell serves.
This will add to the online support services that The Happiness Club already offers which includes training, advice, and a monthly subscription model that provides personalised support and tailored wellbeing guidance.
Laura Taylor, Lovell community engagement manager, said: “As soon as I met Jo, the founder of The Happiness Club, I recognised the importance of her work; it echoed many of the comments and concerns that I’ve heard while working within north west communities. There is a need for more support and education regarding mental health, and the series of informative factsheets that we’ve created together will equip adults and children with practical techniques that help navigate emotions and enhance mental well-being.
"Boosting positive mental health is such an important topic and one that is having a real impact in the areas where Lovell is creating communities. This partnership is a proactive step towards providing additional support and really making a difference in a way that is valued by our communities.”
Jo Howarth, founder of The Happiness Club, said: "Partnering with Lovell allows us to reach a wider audience and make a meaningful impact in the lives of those who need it most. "Together, we're on a mission to promote mental resilience and equip individuals with the tools they need to thrive. I’m looking forward to progressing our work together and the support we can provide across the north west."
