We strive to put the well-being of our staff at the fore front of the business and are currently underway with an office refurbishment, with the aim to create a more effective, efficient and safe working environment for all. Situation of desks and other furniture is purposely designed to support social distancing and work ‘bubbles’, thus protecting the continuation of business with minimal disruption.

Joerns also strive to help local charities and took the opportunity to donate all old desks and drawers to two separate organisations, local Worcester based learning charity for adults with disabilities, Wild Goose Rural Training and our long-term charity partner, Acorns Children’s Hospice.

WGRT offer meaningful land-based activities and training to any individual or group of students in a relaxed, happy atmosphere. They believe in the therapeutic value of working with plants and animals, which has been shown to reduce stress, resulting in better physical and mental well-being for all.

Wild Goose Rural Training are converting a barn at the top of their site into a classroom, and work is well under way. This will be a brilliant new space that’s dry and warm for them to use and teach and with the donated desks from Joerns Healthcare, they are hoping this classroom will be up and running very soon – they also have enough furniture spare to kit out their new second classroom, due to be completed within the next few months!
