Connect For Christmas

01 December 2020


This year, Christmas, like most major holidays, is going to be a little bit different. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Government have advised that we:

  • Only travel between tiers from the 23rd to the 27th of December;
  • Form an exclusive ‘bubble’ with two other households to meet at home during this period;
  • Each Christmas bubble can meet at home, at a place of worship, or an outdoor public place; but not inside restaurants, pubs, or other hospitality venues.

This guidance will mean that, for most of us, Christmas is going to be quieter and shorter than normal. It could pose a serious threat to people’s mental wellbeing, and could leave more people feeling isolated and lonely this Christmas. This also means that technology is going to play a bigger part than ever before in keeping us and our loved ones connected this year.

This is where we can help.

To keep families connected and supported over this Christmas season, The Job Gym is happy to announce that we’ve put together a support programme to give you the tools and training you need to keep mentally healthy and digitally connected throughout the holidays and into the new year. This programme includes:

  • Mental Health Awareness
  • Mental Health Advocacy & First Aid at Work
  • Mental Wellbeing
  • Digital Skills

These courses will allow you to look after yourself and others, and help you start the next year ready to face the challenges that come your way.

Give the gift of keeping connected this Christmas.
