People in Loughton with mental health and substance abuse problems to benefit from donation of computers

First published in Epping Forest by

Employment prospects have improved for people in Loughton recovering from mental illness or substance misuse with the donation of new computers.

The devices were delivered by civil engineering company Skanska to the Rectory Lane Health Centre, where they will be used to give training in basic job skills by the North Essex Partnership.

The partnership provides mental health, substance misuse and social care services for more than 23,000 people across the county.

Andrew Geldard, the chief executive said: “Equipping service users with essential skills is an important part of their recovery – it boosts self-esteem and prepares them for getting back into employment.

“Many thanks to Skanska for donating the computers.”
