'We are committed to being an excellent employer that nurtures and value its staff, and this programme is designed to ensure that every single person who works for Onecom knows that they are supported in any mental health challenges they face.

'At the same time, we recognise the importance of good mental health provision in the wider community, and that is why our staff have chosen to support Young Minds in helping young people and their families access mental health support.

'We are looking forward to working closely with YoungMinds in 2019 and to raising a significant sum in support of its valuable work.’
