Looking After our People

Ask for support | Talk to someone | Get practical help

It is OK to not feel OK.

While it’s normal to struggle at the moment, look out for signs in yourself and others of more significant distress so that support can be accessed. Difficult experiences can lead to growth with the right support.

What you need changes all the time. You can access help to clarify what support you need. Taking the time to talk to someone about your worries can get you the right help at the right time. Everyone needs support and it’s a sign of strength to ask for help.

On these pages you will find concise tips, resources and signposting to help you find the right support for you and your teams for right now and beyond.

We are constantly adding to these resources, with new target groups planned. If you cannot find the resources or help you need, use the search bar above or contact one of our team [email protected].
