Gamlins Law partners with DPJ Foundation to raise awareness in North Wales


A North Wales law firm is to partner with an organisation that tackles mental health issues among the country’s agricultural community.

Gamlins Law will work with the DPJ Foundation to promote its work across the region as well as helping to raise vital funds.

The DPJ Foundation was founded by Emma Picton-Jones following the death of her husband Daniel, a farmer in Pembrokeshire, in 2016.

Since then, Emma and a group of supporters have raised over £40,000 in donations. Last year, it was awarded a grant of £47,000 by Welsh Government to roll out the Foundation’s fully funded counselling and training services to North Wales.

The Foundation’s work has been praised by senior politicians including former Prime Minister Teresa May who said: “The innovative approach you are taking to support the mental health of farmers and people working in rural communities is proactively taking help to where it is needed.”

Gamlins Law’s support for the Foundation is a key part of its award-winning ‘Give with Gamlins’ initiative which supports a range of projects across the communities served by its six offices in Rhyl, Denbigh, Mold, Ruthin, Abergele and Holywell.

Emma Picton-Jones said: “I am delighted that Gamlins Law has agreed to become a partner of the DPJ Foundation. The grant we received from Welsh Government gives us the opportunity to become a truly national organisation in Wales.

“We currently have over 40 trained counsellors who have a deep understanding of the agricultural community and the mental health challenges people working in it face.

“We also have an ever-growing network of champions who help to spread the word about our work and to identify people who may benefit from our services. There is a 24-hour helpline that people can call.”
