Now, more than ever, employees may need additional psychological or financial support. It’s not our role to fix individuals problems but we can certainly signpost.
Employees can access sector-specific support via the organisations below. Not all provide a 24-hour service, and some provide financial support via grants to those who are eligible. Phone numbers are included where available and it will be helpful to add these to your contacts in your own phone.
