Sheffield property management specialist Omnia Property Group is now a fully certified Mental Health First Aid provider.

The company’s Managing Director Joanne Race and Regional Manager Jackie Plumb have both qualified as Mental Health First Aiders, with certification from Mental Health First Aid England.

“We take the mental health and well being of our staff and clientele very seriously and feel that full accreditation with MHFA England demonstrates our full commitment,” said Joanne.

The Omnia Property Group works across all areas of the property market including block and commercial property management, offices, student accommodation, residential lettings and facilities management.

“We are a young team and also many of our tenants are young people people. many of whom have never been away from home before and who may, therefore, be feeling both lonely and vulnerable,” said Joanne.

“We now feel that we are better equipped to offer a better level of understanding and support where it is needed.

“Having achieved this goal, we are also now working towards being recognised as a Mindful Employer, which means will be better able to offer support for staff who experience stress, anxiety, depression or other mental health conditions.”

Omnia Property Group – made up of Omnia Space, Omnia Offices and Omnia Estates – is based in Sheffield and has now grown into a major player covering the whole of the UK, with a workforce of 60.
