The coronavirus pandemic has heightened awareness around wellbeing and while financial advisers continue to play a key role in supporting their clients, many will also be impacted personally and need additional support.
In response, the PFS has launched a Wellbeing Hub, which pulls together on-demand resources designed to offer help, including articles, videos, webcasts and tailored content from Perks, our affinity benefits scheme.
This is just part of the PFS’s work to assist members with their wellbeing as well as the vulnerable circumstances they may face.
Resources highlighting the support provided by our local institutes and PFS regions will be added shortly, along with further content during the year.
Keith Richards, CEO of the PFS, said: “We want to make sure that our members have access to additional support as they work to assist a growing number of consumers finding themselves in vulnerable circumstances due to the economic fallout of Covid-19. That is why, in addition to the practical professional support we already offer members to develop their skills, knowledge and network, we decided to launch a wellbeing hub offering support with mental and physical health issues.
“If financial advisers are to effectively assist their clients, it is essential that they also take care of themselves and we encourage them to give their wellbeing a boost by visiting our hub today, which offers resources to help them, their clients and others around them.”
