WELLBEING therapies and support is on offer for staff dealing with the impact of Coroanvirus on their working life.

With tens of thousands of people in North Wales working from home, on the front line or on furlough, Rhyl City Strategy (RCS) is providing free and confidential support sessions via email, phone or Skype.

RCS operational director Ali Thomas has urged small and medium sized business owners as well as - employed and self-employed people - from across Conwy, Denbighshire, Anglesey and Gwynedd to get in touch for support.

She added: “We are living with unprecedented levels of challenge and uncertainty. It is vital that people have access to support to maintain their health and wellbeing through these difficult times.

“Our business leaders and managers are facing a major challenge just in keeping their businesses afloat. We can help them by providing the emotional wellbeing support their workforce may need, along with some practical tips for staying well at work – at home.”

RCS provide free wellbeing support and therapies over the phone for employees in through their In Work Support Service part-funded by European Social Funding through Welsh Government.

The 30 strong team can also provide advice and guidance on how to maintain good physical health and wellbeing during the lock-down through healthy eating, exercise and quality sleep.

Small and medium sized businesses can tap into guidance on how to manage staff from a distance, and how to keep their workforce engaged and motivated.

They can access a mental health questionnaire to help them check in with staff, to help spot if someone is struggling or might need individual support.

Ms Thomas added:“Like so many other people our team is now home-based, but we are as passionate and positive as ever about improving lives. We are actively encouraging any employers in North Wales to get in touch to see how we can help.

“Our services will hopefully help people to weather the storm and eventually emerge stronger and more resilient, as individuals and teams.”

In the coming weeks, the not-for-profit organisation will be launching a series of wellbeing webinars - online versions of RCS' physical workshops - for small and medium sized businesses to share with their teams free of charge.
