Leading apprenticeship provider for the electrical sector JTL has continued its support for EIC – the Electrical Industry Charity – by organising a recent five-a-side football match at the Sir Doug Ellis Woodcock Sports Centre, at Aston University, raising over £500 through contributions from staff and their friends and families.
JTL continues to work alongside the Electrical Industries Charity to highlight the negative impact of stress. Their joint campaign aims to help people working in the electrical sector to address stressful situations and seek help. It includes a dedicated Apprentice Support Programme, designed to help apprentices with any challenges they may face early on in their career.
The assistance available through the EIC covers a wide range of issues – from caring for a sick or elderly relative to dealing with redundancy. The EIC’s team of trained advisors can offer free financial, legal, emotional or health-related advice. The Electrical Industries Charity wants to end the stigma of mental health by offering vital support services for people who are experiencing mental health problems in the electrical sector.
JTL managed to raise two teams and a number of substitutes for the game and the final score was 11-9 and several of the players expressed their willingness to return to the fray in the future for a re-match! Tessa Ogle, Managing Director and CEO of the EIC said: “We’re grateful for the support we receive from JTL and are pleased that our partnership is working so well. We look forward to more events like this one in the future.”
