Your mental health

We’ve been working hard to help break down some of the barriers that keep our people from talking about their mental health and seeking help when they need it most. 

We are immensely proud of our charity partnership with Mental Health UK. Since the beginning of our partnership our colleagues have been central to our charity initiatives, increasing awareness and education on mental health and showing that with the right support, colleagues experiencing poor mental health, or living with an on-going mental health condition, can still succeed and thrive at work.

We'll train 2,500 colleagues as mental health advocates by the end of 2021
That's roughly 1 advocate for every 30 colleagues
300,000 people with a long term mental health problem lose their jobs each year
35% of people think they would be less likely to get promoted if they had depression
Our Mental Health strategy aims to increase understanding, reduce stigma and empower wellbeing well

Our cancer pledges

At Lloyds Banking Group we take pride in putting our people first to create a workplace where everyone can feel included and has the opportunity to thrive.  And when 1 in 2 of us are likely to get cancer, making sure we’re there for our people in the right way at such a crucial time is something we’re committed to. In short, we’re a company who cares about our people.  

We know that for many people with a cancer diagnosis for themselves or of a loved one, continuing to work can offer an important sense of normality in an otherwise very challenging time. It’s also clear that colleagues will at times struggle with the effects of cancer, the side effects of cancer treatment, as well as emotional and psychological impacts, that may mean a need to make adjustments or take time out from work.

 In line with our values, we want to do all we can to support you and so we’re proud to support the #workingwithcancer campaign with some important pledges.

Pledge 1: We’ll work with our colleagues to better understand their journey with cancer and what more we could do to support them. This research will inform our five-year Health and Wellbeing plan.

Pledge 2: We’ll build awareness of the impact of having cancer, the support available to our colleagues living with cancer, and care givers. We aim to reduce stigma, support our people towards early identification and treatment, and make sure they feel safe and supported to discuss their cancer diagnosis and treatment in the workplace, enabling us to truly support them on their journey.

Pledge 3: We’ll work with subject matter experts both internally and externally, to upskill our leaders, line managers and our people, so that they can better support others living with cancer and their care givers in the moments that matter.

Always proud

At Lloyds Banking Group we encourage the members of our Rainbow network to be Always Proud.
