As we continue to navigate through these uncertain times, it’s very easy to feel stressed about what the future may hold.
Worrying about coronavirus can take its toll emotionally. However, sometimes, it’s about finding joy in the ordinary.
No matter how small the moment of happiness is, it’s still positive. Whether that’s listening to music, reading a book, spending time with your pet or the sunshine on your face – take time to look after your health.
GroceryAid can help you
During times of change and worry, GroceryAid can help support colleagues in need. GroceryAid have created a one-stop page on their website with specific Covid-19 content, so that people can find help quickly – accessible here.
They have also announced new services that will enhance their previous offering, available through their free 24/7 confidential helpline and website, including immediate access to counselling support, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and specialist advice on general and practical day to day issues.
The GroceryAid Helpline is available 24/7, 365 days a year to all colleagues, past and present, regardless of length of service:

Your financial wellbeing
In the current climate as we all manage our finances more closely the following are a few things to be aware of.
Answering your Pension queries
We’re working closely with Legal & General, the company who administer your pension savings, to make sure that all the normal day-to-day tasks are being carried out as they should be. We’re confident that Legal & General is well placed to continue to operate effectively. However, you won’t be surprised to hear that they are a lot busier than normal so if you want to contact them, you’ll need to do this through the website rather than through their call centre. You can log into your account at www.legalandgeneral.com/workplace/g/greencore. Please be patient while they get to your query!
As a company we are unable to give financial advice. If you would like to speak to a financial adviser, you can find one via the following website www.unbiased.co.uk.
Sadly, some opportunists are taking advantage of coronavirus to target members of pension schemes. ‘Scamsmart’ is a campaign set up by the Financial Conduct Authority to help members avoid pension and investment scams. Visit www.fca.org.uk for further information and to check an investment or pension opportunity you may have been offered. If you’re offered something that sounds too good to be true, it probably is!
