At Grand Union, staff have been working hard to support our customers and each other throughout this difficult time - see our coronavirus pages for updates. This has included regular updates to our wellbeing pages; sharing ideas and coping strategies based on the 5 ways to wellbeing. 

It is quite natural to feel overwhelmed, anxious and even scared at the moment. We’ve been in and out of lockdown, and subjected to changing restrictions and sacrifices as we strive to restrict the spread of coronavirus and protect our health service and the most vulnerable. The best news of course, is that vaccines have now been produced and are being successfully rolled out. We are starting to move along the government road map out of lockdown, although it's also dependent on the infection statistics also moving in the right direction.

We asked staff for their ideas and we have used these to update our wellbeing pages, still loosely based on the 5 ways to wellbeing.

We hope they will entertain, inform and motivate - remember one good idea can often spark another. We would also like to start sharing some of the things that customers have been doing. If you have any ideas that you would like to share, please contact Emma Dagless, Health and Wellbeing Coordinator at or if you live in one of our homes, join our private Health & Wellbeing Facebook page.
