The Printing Charity’s Neil Lovell says that access to emotional support during these potentially overwhelming times is “important”

The helpline has a particular focus on SMEs (small-medium enterprises) in the industry and will offer in the moment counselling from the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). These accredited counsellors will offer advice and guidance on potential issues such as dealing with debt, housing issues to addiction and stress.

Neil Lovell, The Printing Charity’s chief executive, comments: “We had planned to introduce our helpline through a phased roll-out to SMEs over a longer period, but since this pandemic began we have stepped it up a gear, working with industry bodies such as IPIA and BPIF to communicate to member companies.

In these times of great anxiety and change many people are feeling overwhelmed so access to practical and emotional support is important, not just for today’s challenges but for what be round the corner, too

“We want to hear from business owners who want to support their staff through the helpline. We will talk them through the service and ask them to support the roll-out to their staff on site and those who have been furloughed. Their staff’s immediate family members in the same household can also have access to the service.”

Lovell concludes: “In these times of great anxiety and change many people are feeling overwhelmed so access to practical and emotional support is important, not just for today’s challenges but for what be round the corner, too.”
