As coronavirus continues to impact every area of our lives, there has never been a more important time for business owners to support their employees’ health and wellbeing.
At Glossop Cartons we are extremely lucky to be able to access a fantastic organisation called The Printing Charity.
About The Printing Charity
The only dedicated charity for people in the printing sector, it offers free practical and emotional support to people who work in (or have previously worked in) the printing sector, helping them find their way through life’s challenges.
- Practical support: Citizen’s Advice Bureau style advice across a broad range of topics from separation and debt management through to funeral planning and home repairs.
- Emotional support: provided by British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) accredited therapists via phone 24/7/365. Further consultations may be offered face-to-face either remotely or at an appropriate social distance.
The Printing Charity’s Helpline
Individuals working in the print industry can access this free confidential helpline, 24 hours a day, every day of the year. Access to the helpline is provided at a business level. To find out more, visit www.theprintingcharity.org.uk/our-helpline and complete the form or connect with Nicola Peacock on LinkedIn.
We first partnered with The Printing Charity in early 2019 and have been impressed by their approachable and organised style. As a business owner I’m pleased and reassured to be able to offer their services to my team as I know that coronavirus is creating many new problems and anxieties. Totally independent from us, The Printing Charity gives our employees somewhere to go when they’re in need and require specialist, impartial advice and support.
Several members of our team have used the service already as they cope with a range of personal crises and their feedback about their experience has been excellent.
Accessing the support your employees need
I am proud to be an ambassador for The Printing Charity and wholeheartedly recommend other employers in the sector to get involved.
