Staff, volunteers and trustees at Help are shocked at the terrible news of the Grenfell Tower fire. Our thoughts are with everyone affected.
After such an awful event, it is normal to feel all sorts of strong emotions in response. It is important to talk about how we are feeling and to support each other. There is also support available if you are struggling.
Here is some information about accessing the available emotional support.
Free listening support for staff and service users at local organisations
If you work for a local organisation and would like to access free listening/psychosocial support, please call the Help office on 020 7221 9974 or email [email protected] to discuss.
We can offer listening support in groups or for individuals. This can be for staff or service users. Group supervision is also available for staff/support workers as well as group information sessions about how to look after your emotional health following a major incident.
We can come to your organisation or sometimes we can offer individual listening support from our centre if you would prefer to come here and we have a room available.
