The new health and wellbeing section of the GroceryAid charity website has launched this week.

The charity, which helps those in the grocery industry who have fallen on hard times, launched its new website in the summer, and has now created a new section to help specifically with health and wellbeing.

The section has been created following feedback from the 158-year-old charity’s annual industry research, and offers guidance and support for everyone in the grocery industry.

“This exciting new service tackles the issues highlighted in our survey as being of most concern to the people who work within our industry. It covers topics such as healthy living; long-term conditions; disability; support for those who care for others; money matters and mental health,” said a GroceryAid spokeswoman.

“Our aim is to equip grocery people with the skills and knowledge they need to make informed decisions and help them to deal with some of the pressures they may be experiencing. It also encourages conversations about key health and wellbeing issues that affect us all.”

GroceryAid receives no government or public funding and relies on contributions solely from the industry.
