Listening Ear is a new pilot programme that’s here to help…
Running a business is stressful at the best of times. Running a business during a pandemic is even harder. There’s a lot to think about just to keep afloat at the moment. But don’t forget that YOU are one of the most important parts of your business and you need to look after yourself as well as the paperwork.
Listening Ear is a new service that gives you the opportunity to chat informally to an experienced volunteer about whatever’s making you feel stressed. We’re not here to offer business advice; we’re here to provide a friendly, impartial listening ear so you can talk about whatever you feel you need to. Our experienced volunteers will provide a supportive ear and will also be able to signpost you to other services if you need them. Even if you’re feeling ok at the moment, it’s a great way to take some time for yourself and chat to someone independent.
Your wellbeing is important to both your health and the future of your business. Talking to one of our Listening Ear volunteers is a way for you to prioritise your own mental wellbeing, especially when you may not feel comfortable talking to your friends and family about things.
It’s ok to put yourself first. Call our team and book your first chat today.
If you would like to find out more about talking to our Listening Ear volunteers and book a slot, please visit www.devoncommunities.org.uk/projects/listening-ear, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01392 248919.
Listening Ear is funded by Devon County Council and has been developed in partnership with Devon Communities Together. It is initially a pilot until March 2021, with the possibility of being extended and expanded in the future.
