NAvigate+ Mental Health & Carer Support

NAvigate+ Mental Health & Carer Support

Our NAvigate+ portal holds numerous benefits for our workers, including a wide range of retail and gym discounts and round-the-clock healthcare services. The latest report of 2023 indicates that 78% of you are fully utilising the portal’s potential, which is fantastic.

There are two offerings through NAvigate+ that you may not know about and may help you and your family during a difficult time. Mental health support and carers support.

The mental health support is accessible 24/7 and offers you six free face-to-face counselling sessions per life event. These can also be held online or over the phone (on average 1 session of counselling would cost you £45 without NAvigate+).

The carer support offers 1 free consultation with Tutella for workers who are also carers, of which 20% are. These free consultations can cover expert care advice and bespoke budgeted plans, advice on managing the cost of care and sourcing state/private funding, help on a wide range of legal matters including power of attorney, living wills etc and property support including relocation services.

If you haven’t already, click here to sign up to NAvigate+. Speak to your Stafforce representative if you require support getting set up on our well-being app.
