We are working with RJ8 to offer free mental health and well-being care to our team
This week is #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek and we are delighted to officially launch our new mental health and wellbeing initiative in partnership with RJ8 – mental health experts. This support will be available to the entire Moorland team and their families.
Our wellbeing package contains unlimited access to face-to-face, telephone or video call counselling for a wide range of concerns, such as relationship advice, family issues, childcare support, domestic abuse, and more. In addition, access is provided for financial, legal, and medical emergencies as well as mental health awareness training.
Richard Wallace, Group Managing Director:
“At the Craggs Energy Group of which Moorland Fuels is a part of, we pride ourselves on being a company that nurtures a motivated, engaged and committed team. The overall well-being of our team is very important to us and creating a supportive environment is high on our priority list. We are pleased to be working with RJ8 to provide our staff with a highly trained and professional support network that is also available for anyone over 16 years old in their household. Furthermore, it’s important we reduce the stigma by talking openly, being a supportive employer and creating a safe space for our employees. Introducing this policy during Mental Health Awareness week has triggered open conversations, listening, and understanding.”
Rebecca Jane, Founder & CEO of RJ8: “We’re honoured to be working with The Craggs Energy Group and the backing we have received from the board in supporting their staff has been exceptional. We offered our ‘best advice’ and every suggestion we made was put in place. The dedication to the mental health of the Moorland Fuels staff has been second to none. Not only that, but our suggestions to look after the family of employees was firmly supported too. This means that Moorland Fuels now give free private mental health care to family living in the household of an employee. If every business looked after the mental health of their employees in the same way Moorland Fuels has, the UK would not have the mental health crisis we have today.”
We have been in operation for over fifteen years and provide fuel delivery services to homes, farms and businesses. With bases in Okehampton and Plymouth, we primarily serve the Southwest region. Our excellent reputation has been built by a team of dedicated drivers and staff and most recently, we became an Employee-owned business.
