Running a business is tough at the best of times; now the crisis has brought even more stress and pressure to many business owners. So there’s a growing need to help business owners look after their mental wellbeing, and we care about helping them to do that.
It was very important for us to form this partnership with Mental Health UK so that we can develop the UK’s first ever mental health support programme designed specifically for SME owners. We’re doing research to help us get a deep understanding of what their needs are, and then we’ll develop really tailored support that will bring real benefit to business owners.
