Your health

Looking after your health during tough times is hugely important. There are many ways you can do this.

Mental Health support

We’ve partnered with charity Talk, Listen, Change (TLC) to offer emotional support to our residents. Guinness residents can access up to five free online and telephone sessions each. Find out more and register your interest on our dedicated TLC webpage.

The NHS have a fantastic hub filled with advice and support around mental health.

You can also take a look at our webpage on supporting children’s mental health.

Disability Cost of Living Payment

Individuals on disability benefits will receive a one-off £150 payment in September 2022 to help with extra costs, such as for specialist equipment or transport.

This is in addition to the £650 Cost of Living Payment for disabled people who also receive means tested benefits.

Check if you’re eligible for the Disability Cost of Living Payment.

Food banks and food pantries

We know it’s a challenging time for everyone at the moment and that sometimes the essentials in life, like food, can take a back seat when you’re struggling financially.

Our dedicated food banks and pantries webpage has information about food banks and food pantries across the country that help to serve those who may need extra help in some of the communities where we have properties. You’ll be able to find out the difference between food banks and food pantries, what each can offer and where you can find them, should you need them.

Warm Spaces

With the cost of living rising, we know some people are struggling with the costs of energy bills.

Around the country, Warm Spaces are being created to enable people to gather for free in a warm, safe, welcoming place and maybe enjoy a hot drink and some company.

As and when we receive information on Warm Spaces near our homes, we’ll update this section with the details. Keep popping back to see if there’s anywhere near you if you want to have some time in a warm and safe space this winter.
