Who We Are

A Collaboration Of Minds

Ownminder is fuelled by industry insight and expert contributors to motivate all workers to develop and maintain their mind fitness. Based on the supported belief that prevention is just as important, if not more so, than reactive only mental health strategies, we have partnered with key industry organisations and leaders who passionately share this same belief.

Our founding partners blu-3, Erith, Lucas UK and Morrisroe, value the changes in the Health & Safety legislation, social value and government procurement policies, to focus more on providing mental health support and training. With their support and invaluable industry insight, Ownminder has been developed to ensure that what we deliver both resonates with and is engaging for the construction industry and its workers.

Director of Operations

Following 12 successful years working in investment banking, Tania chose to set up her own wedding planning business combining the skills she had developed working in such a fast-paced, pressurised, deadline-driven environment with her desire to do something more creative, meaningful and flexible.
