While some parts of our lives have begun to feel more familiar, changes to the way we travel, work and interact with others may be with us for a while longer. And, we are still unsure about the long-term impact of the crisis.
The Covid-19 pandemic continues to pose new challenges that make the weeks, months, even years ahead seem uncertain. Whether you’ve been one of the many affected by redundancy, you’re apprehensive about adjusting to a ‘new normal’, anxious about returning to the workplace, or facing any other challenge as a result of the pandemic, we’ll be here to support you, every step of the way.
You can find more resources to support your wellbeing here.
During times of change, focusing on your personal and professional skills can help you regain or maintain a sense of control, balance and wellbeing.

Your income may be affected as a result of coronavirus, you may have been made redundant, are unable to work while you’re in quarantine or self-isolating, or have been living on a reduced income because you’ve been on furlough or your workplace has been temporarily closed. In many instances we can provide financial support to get you through the tough times to keep you and your family well.
Our financial support is means-tested. This means we take your income, expenditure, capital and assets into account when awarding financial support.
You may have a query about being furloughed, your employment contract or redundancy rights. Our partner Law Express may be able to help. They can offer a wide range of independent advice, guidance and information on a host of legal issues arising from COVID-19.
