Foothold wellbeing hub

Health and wellbeing looks different for everyone.

We live in different time zones, have different interests, and face different challenges. As part of our expanding digital support, we want to give everyone in our community a way to improve their life in a way that suits them. In collaboration with Gattaca PLC, we're bringing you Foothold wellbeing hub - free, readily available expertise on all things mental wellbeing.

Expert advice

  • The hub is designed to support you in a way that works best for you. The short ‘bitesize’ sessions contain the latest quick tips on everything from emotional health to addiction, work issues and more. 
  • If you have more time, why not dive into a ‘find out more’ session? These are perfect if you want to find out the latest science-backed facts about any aspect of your wellbeing and learn how to address a specific problem.

  • Get the skills and knowledge to create positive long-term changes. So, whether you whizz through a 10-minute checklist on improving your sleep or work through a longer course to reduce your stress levels, it all counts.

COVID-19 support

  • The pandemic has been a challenge for most of us in every way. From practical problems and adapting to a new way of life to mental health challenges and coping with trauma and loss. 
  • The hub will support you with the latest advice on everything from becoming more resilient and coping with financial pressures, to preventing burnout and more. Whether you have five minutes or an hour, you'll see a benefit.
