Rainy Day Trust launches leaflet to promote its Covid-19 support and announces new helpline number

Published: 8 September 2020 - Neil Mead

The Rainy Day Trust is continuing in the drive to spread awareness of its support during the COVID-19 crisis with the launch of a leaflet designed to appeal to businesses potentially at the beginning of any restructuring process.


The charity has also announced a new phone number 0800 9154627, which has come about through Connect Assist, RDT’s case-working partner, having changed its telecomms provider.

The leaflet, ‘Help for your business to cope with the new normal’, urges companies to get in touch with the RDT at an early stage – as Bryan Clover CEO of the charity explains: “We’re worried that in some areas, furloughed staff will turn into redundant staff. That’s never an easy thing to deal with. But we can bring a fresh perspective to your plans and help individuals concerned or affected by any changes. If you, your company or anyone you know, is talking about a re-structure or job losses, please engage with us right from the start.”

The leaflet highlights how the RDT can help, will treat the situation with the utmost confidentiality and also suggests businesses might want to think about the reaction of staff who remain. “If they can see that you genuinely care about your staff, and are helping in all sorts of ways, they are far more likely to stay.”

Contact the Rainy Day Trust for more information – the charity has Covid-19 application forms for financial support, a ‘Supporting your staff’ document as well as a mental health guidance document. “Whatever your needs are, we can make sure that your staff feel cared for and supported.”

To talk to Rainy Day Trust about working together contact or call 07939 541289.
