When you are busy at work and managing home life, it doesn’t always feel possible to take care of yourself too. But even doing small things can make a big difference to your mental wellbeing. Living amid a global pandemic is difficult at the best of times but when you are on the frontline, it adds an extra layer of additional challenges for you to manage and deal with. While it is important to stay informed, there are also many things we can do to support and manage our wellbeing during such times.

Wellbeing Week is designed to provide information and resources to help you manage your own wellbeing.

Daily Wellbeing Sessions

Every day from the 22nd to 26th June, we will be releasing a new video presented by Katie, our Employee Relations People Partner,  where you will be able to benefit from some useful information on resilience and mental fitness.

Additional Support

We recognise that these are challenging times for you all and want to make sure that you are aware of all the various support channels that you have access to, should you need them. 

We are acutely conscious that whatever the usual challenges of the job, these have been amplified.  We want you to feel like that you have somewhere to turn, or someone to talk to, when you are finding things difficult. For many of you this will be your friends, family, and colleagues. It is important, however, that you have other options for support.

We appreciate all the care you are providing to our residents; we care about you too.
