Housewares and home improvements industry charity The Rainy Day Trust has launched a leaflet to promote its Covid-19 for businesses that might be at the beginning of a restructuring process. The charity has also announced a new phone helpline number 0800 9154627.
The new leaflet, ‘Help for your business to cope with the new normal’, urges companies to get in touch with the RDT at an early stage. Bryan Clover ceo of the charity explains: “We’re worried that in some areas, furloughed staff will turn into redundant staff. That’s never an easy thing to deal with. But we can bring a fresh perspective to your plans and help individuals concerned or affected by any changes. If you, your company or anyone you know, is talking about a re-structure or job losses, please engage with us right from the start.”
The leaflet highlights how the RDT can help, treating the situation with the utmost confidentiality. It also suggests businesses might want to think about the reaction of staff who remain. “If they can see that you genuinely care about your staff, and are helping in all sorts of ways, they are far more likely to stay,” Bryan reflects.
The Rainy Day Trust also has Covid-19 application forms for financial support, a ‘Supporting your staff’ document as well as a mental health guidance document.
“Whatever your needs are, we can make sure that your staff feel cared for and supported,” says Bryan.
