Mencap launches financial wellbeing programme for 6,000 staff

Learning disability charity Mencap has launched a financial wellbeing programme for its 6,000 employees.

The financial wellbeing programme, provided by Neyber, was introduced on 16 April 2017. It features a range of digital and face-to-face initiatives, designed to help employees build financial knowledge and resilience.

Employees can attend on-site seminars, or one-to-one clinics, as well access a digital wellbeing hub that offers online tools to support staff with financial planning, savings, pensions and debt management. The wellbeing hub features articles, videos, debt calculators, webinars, and podcasts.

Staff also receive a weekly email focused around financial wellbeing, and are able to access low-cost loans direct from their salary.

Mira Hohideen (pictured), head of pension and benefits at Mencap, said: “Over the last couple of years, we have introduced a number of voluntary benefits and we are very pleased, working with Neyber, to extend this to offer a financial wellbeing programme. This will be valued by a number of our [employees].”
