Supporting the health and wellbeing of current and former bank employees
We’re here to help bank employees and their families across the UK. We do this by providing advice, information, expert support and, in some cases, financial help.
Mainly it was the heat intolerance, not being able to sit in a room or go outside, to me that was just like 'melt in a corner', and I'd lose all strength and not be able to do much. And that's one of the reasons that I spoke to BWC. I found out about BWC through my work as a disability advocate.
Actually, sometimes you've got to ask for help. You can't just be that strong man all the time. You know I'd like to be a strong man but unfortunately, it's not something that everyone can do all the time.
So - asking for help, do it.
Welcoming in a positive New YearThe start of a New Year is the perfect time to make a promise to ourselves that we’ll do what we can to protect our wellbeing.
So why not start 2022 by developing a positive mindset? A positive mindset can help to reduce stress, lower the risk of depression, promote better physical and mental wellbeing, and equips us with the skills to manage better during difficult times. And a great way to get started is by learning how to relax.
