At NCHA we want you to know that your wellbeing is a priority. Whilst we expect you to take responsibility for your own health and wellbeing we also provide benefits, activities and information to support your wellbeing at work and beyond.

We all have unique needs and we want to support you to feel happy and healthy in five key areas of wellbeing: 

  • Emotional
  • Financial
  • Physical
  • Social
  • Work.

Our wellbeing plan is provided for colleagues (sorry - not relief or bank roles) and covers your everyday health needs by providing cashback for dental, optical and physiotherapy costs. Alongside this there are wellness services which include GP Anytime and free confidential counselling.

Whether you need an eye test, new glasses or prescription sunglasses, you’ll get an allowance of £100 per year to spend so that you can see clearly.

Most of us don’t relish going to the dentist but our £100 allowance each year takes some of the pain out of it!

Aches and pains, need a bit of relaxation or me time? Our wellbeing plan provides a range of holistic and relaxation therapies, from hot stone massages to hopi ear candles.

NCHA colleagues can also benefit from smoking cessation programmes, physiotherapy and chiropody.

From time to time we all need a little extra support and our wellbeing plan means you can get access to quick, free and confidential counselling 24/7. You can get this over the phone or face-to-face, whatever suits you. It doesn’t have to be a work related issue, it’s just help when you need it.

When you join NCHA, information on our wellbeing plan will be sent to you in the post and more on this can be found on our intranet when you arrive.

Wellbeing Champions

We want to support the mental health of our colleagues, and our Wellbeing Champions help us to do this. They support colleagues to access wellbeing activities and resources. They are also trained Mental Health First Aiders, which means they can offer confidential guidance by listening and signposting to appropriate support.
