The Solent Business Wellbeing Scheme launches on 17th February with a 1-hour virtual event, open to any small business owner in the Solent area.
Speak to any group of businesses and you’ll find that the last 12 months have taken an incredible toll on so many people’s mental health.
Business owners have faced the same life challenges as the rest of the population, with the added pressure of taking endless high-stakes decisions about the future of their firm.
James Ford, Solent LEP Growth Hub Manager said:
“The Covid pandemic has brought untold challenges for business owners. Whilst navigating the minefield of financial survival, looking after the health of staff, customers, suppliers, family, and trying to adapt your business in a changing world – how do you look after your own mental health and wellbeing?”
“That’s why Solent Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) has joined up with small business experts, FSB to launch a brand-new scheme focussed on your wellbeing”.
During the digital event you will hear from the providers of FSB and Solent LEP’s wellbeing service for business owners, senior healthcare professional, Christine Husbands and Senior Mental Health Nurse, Alison Simmons about some simple strategies that you as a small business owner can put in place, to look after yourself and overcome the stresses brought about by running your business through the current circumstances.
