Think Healthy Me (THM) Ltd was a new business start-up a year ago just as the first Coronavirus lockdown hit. Now in April 2021, we have taken the bold step of re-registering and changing our status to that of a Community Interest Company (CIC). This is because, as a Board of Directors we have realised that we can potentially achieve more and have a greater impact on the deprivation around health and wellbeing currently being experienced by people in Thanet and wider in Kent and the UK. We aim to do this by undertaking projects and accessing grants to fund them. Whilst the commercial needs of businesses will remain a focus where possible, it seems to us that community-based needs are a greater priority for Think Healthy Me’s attention.
During the pandemic and the past year, we have learnt a lot about the achievements of our THM Associates in regenerating and re-imagining their businesses. We have the capability to help struggling Kent SME’s in doing the same. We are also now collaborating with other charitable organisations, for example the Warnborough Foundation, to assist where we can with their aims.
Our aim is to develop funding bids for projects that can contribute to improving people’s health and wellbeing by tackling key issues such as diabetes, obesity, depression, loneliness and poor mental health using life-style change and a broad range of complimentary health services. We are keen to make a difference in the community and hope to work in partnership with local GP surgeries and other community-based organisations.
The health of the UK economy and businesses is reeling due to the Covid 19 Pandemic.
A new Kent based company recognised an opportunity to support and help the struggling Kent companies, both corporate and SME’s. Think Healthy Me Ltd registered themselves with Companies House in April 2020 during the Lockdown. Since registering they have prepared themselves with the appropriate skills and passion necessary to help local businesses regenerate.
Brian Urwin, CEO of Think Healthy Me Ltd has always had a keen interest in health, his own, his families and the wider community. Since the World Rio Summit in 1992 he has followed all World summits. Also, he has travelled the world to research different countries responses to Climate Change and Health. He is convinced that the key to success here in the UK is that measuring and improving organisational health is complimentary to improving the bottom line.
Brian Urwin quote: “Many of our Associates have had life-threatening experiences including myself with a Cardiac Arrest in a foreign country in 2000. Through lifestyle changes, we have successfully conquered these illnesses and learnt as a result. We wish to share this learning. Our collective skills are extensive and include, Executive Coaching, Resilience, Stress Management, Obesity, Heart Mindfulness, Healthy Eating, Yoga to address PTSD, Human Resources, Organisation Development and Community Empowerment”
Selected associates complete a needs analysis with Business Owners which directs them to the key focus requirements to regenerate. The outcome is that THM helps the Business Owner to identify the diverse and complex organisation needs.
