Given the year we’ve had it’s likely more people may find it a challenge this year. If you or a colleague are encountering difficulties it might be useful to reach out to Lionheart, the only charity dedicated to supporting Chartered Surveyors, past and present and their families. The range of services available to members includes financial support, health and wellbeing packages, free professional counselling, work-related support and legal advice as well as help if members or their loved ones become seriously ill.
Lionheart counsellors are specially trained in delivering therapy sessions online but since the onset of Covid they have also begun offering support to clients via secure email and messaging services. For anyone encountering difficulties securing employment, LionHeart has a ‘Back to Work’ programme which provides personalised career coaching from specialist advisers.
LionHeart is supported by the donations of members, though that’s not a requirement to use the service. If you'd like a local referral to the LionHeart service, contact email@example.com. All queries are confidential and nothing is kept on file. You can request to talk to an SCSI member which is a local representative as well as the LionHeart professional staff. Alternatively, you can contact their helpline directly at +44 121 289 3300 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
