Why should you get involved in GroceryAid Awareness Day?
Last year, GroceryAid launched our first Awareness Day with the aim of spreading the word about the free emotional, financial and practical support available to all grocery colleagues from their industry charity. We were pleased to see an incredible 63 companies take part, with 5,483 stores and manufacturing sites sharing Awareness Day information with colleagues!
Last year's Awareness Day led to a 31% increase in applications and a 22% increase in calls to our Helpline. One person who we helped is James.
James is in his late 20’s and recently lost his driving licence due to a medical issue. It also meant his shift pattern had to change which led to his partner having to cut her hours to drive him to work and also pick their daughter up from nursery. As a consequence, their household income has reduced and they’re struggling to cope.
GroceryAid helped with a one-off grant to help them adjust, and recommended they work with StepChange to learn how to budget on a reduced income.
There could be colleagues within your business today who are struggling in silence with nowhere to turn. Without you spreading the word of GroceryAid, we will not be able to support these people.
Check out what companies got up to last year here.
