Mates in Mind
In 2021 we agreed a three-year partnership with Mates in Mind, a leading UK charity that works to provide employers with the skills, clarity and confidence to raise awareness, improve understanding and address the stigma of mental ill-health within the workplace.
As a business we have a clear focus on supporting the mental health and wellbeing of our colleagues. As well as our ongoing partnership with Mates in Mind, all our colleagues have completed mental health awareness training. We have a team of accredited Mental Health First Aiders throughout the business who are a point of contact for colleagues if they, or someone they know, is experiencing a mental health issue or emotional distress. Our Mental Health First Aiders can give their colleagues initial support and signpost appropriate help if required.
We also provide access to an Employee Assistance Programme for free confidential support for employees and their families.
