Support for Staff


We understand the concerns of our valued home managers and staff during this difficult period.  Please see the resources below for support and advice.

Resources for staff

Employee Assistance Programme

If you need someone to talk to, our Employee Assistance Programme is available. Through this service, you can talk to a British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy accredited counsellor at any time, who is available to listen and support with anything troubling you emotionally, or affecting your mental wellbeing.

You can also select the option to seek practical support, if you just need advice on things ranging from stopping smoking, to neighbour disputes (a bit like Citizen’s Advice).

You can contact:

Confidential 24/7 Helpline: 0808 168 2143

Care First

There is a website, with all sorts of online resources, from practical advice to emotional wellbeing, which you can access from your PC or mobile phone. We have set this up to give another outlet, another means of support – it is completely confidential – so do make use of it if it might be helpful…. what have you got to lose?
