The Electrical Industries Charity (EIC) launched the Employee and Family Support Programme (EFP) to give a helping hand to employees and their families in their time of need. The charity is encouraging the industry to sign up to the programme and give hope to thousands of people within the electrical sector.
The EFP is solely funded by powerLottery and is part of the Employee Assistance Programme (EAP).
Through the EFP, EIC is able to provide financial relief and practical support services to people and their immediate families who have worked or are working in electrical and energy-related industries. The support services that EIC offers include debt advice, telephone counselling, carer support network, career advice and financial assistance and grants which helps to address issues such as family or relationship problems, mental health issues, ill health and disability.
EIC has supported thousands of employees and their families and given them an opportunity to move forward with their lives. The industry can make a huge difference in someone’s life and help EIC to not only give vital support to those who are struggling but also to turn their dreams into reality and give hope for the future.
EFP has been proven to facilitate timely intervention that better manages outcomes for individuals, families and businesses. Once signed up to the programme, all of the services that EIC provides are completely free of charge, which means the sooner you sign up to EFP, the sooner EIC will be able to look out for your employees and their loved ones.
