Retail Trust

Creating hope, health and happiness for everyone in retail

From 1832 onwards, the Retail Trust has been caring for and protecting the lives of people working in retail. We believe the health of our colleagues is the foundation they need to flourish in both work and life, creating a more sustainable and successful future for retail.

Support our charity and together we can transform lives for good.

Your health and wellbeing

We have partnered with the Retail Trust to provide our independent retailers access to free and confidential health and wellbeing support.

The Retail Trust cares passionately about the health and wellbeing of everyone in retail. No matter how bad things get, the charity can offer you reassurance and clarity. And help find the answers you need to realise your potential.

The Retail Trust website is packed full of articles, quizzes, videos and guidance on everything from mental health and wellbeing to your career and lifestyle. You can take charge and decide what’s important to you. Think of it as your very own support network.

Once you’ve registered on the Retail Trust website you can personalise it and choose what topics interest you. Whether that be advice on how to cope with anxiety or financial worries to valuable tips on managing a team or reworking your CV. You’re in total control.

And remember, it’s completely confidential. Completely. That means, as with everything at the Retail Trust, no one at work will know what topics you choose, what you’re clicking on, what you’re reading or whether you’re reaching out for counselling or financial aid.

Register today, choose ‘Hyve Group’ as your employer, and start your wellbeing journey. 

You can also access the Retail Trust wellbeing helpline 24 hours a day, seven days a week on 0808 801 0808.

Financial support when you need it most

We know that financial pressure can really affect our mental health. If you’re experiencing financial difficulties, worried about money because of a health condition (yours or a family member) or have an unexpected change in circumstances, the Retail Trust may be able to help financially.

Or maybe you need support with extra training or university costs to help you move forward in your retail career? It could be as simple from helping you buy a laptop to easing larger financial barriers, such as helping you to afford tuition fees or rent, the financial aid the Trust offers could make a big difference.
