Cost of living - the help and support available for automotive workers
Many around the country are struggling as the cost-of-living crisis continues. It can be a confusing, stressful and worrying time for many workers in the automotive industry, but there is help available, be it someone to talk to, organisational skills or more.  In this episode of the Auto Repair Focus Podcast, Phil Curry talks to Rachel Clift, Health and Wellbeing Director at automotive industry charity Ben, about the issues people are facing and the support that is available to them. From financial issues to mental health and wellbeing worries, Rachel highlights the work Ben is doing, and the different channels of help that automotive workers and their families can benefit from.
