We’ve been doing some research this week on how to stay busy at home, look after your mental health and get support when needed. Whilst a lot of this can be found on the government website, we want to ensure that for any of you who are worried about your employment during these times, we have a list of resources from our own archives.

Official Guidance

The Government is constantly updating their guidance and you will find all necessary steps and advice in their official article here: Gov.uk COVID-19

Staying Connected

Whilst video calling is becoming the new normal, it does relay an important message; staying inside alone is hard. Please do reach out to others if you are alone, or to anyone you know that may be alone.

Our staff can always be reached at the end of their phones if you need someone to contact.

Your Mental Health

If you are worried about the coronavirus (COVID-19), and how it may affect your mental health, please have a look through Mind’s guidance that can be found here: Mind – Coronavirus & your wellbeing.

Your Employment

As the government releases more information about the job retention scheme and advice for those affected, you can find guidance on their website. If you are an employee, employer or business, click here for the official guidance: Gov.uk - guidance for employees, employers and businesses

Whilst our approach is continually evolving and we are contacting relevant workers directly, you should contact support@buildrec.com if you have any specific questions.
