A Greater Manchester community interest company based in Salford is offering FREE coaching sessions to frontline workers who are keeping the country going during the Covid 19 crisis.

Result CIC is a non-profit coaching and training organisation. It specialises in supporting marginalised people and leaders keen to enable their diverse staff to be ‘confidently different’ at work. Clients include the NHS, BBC, University of Manchester, Amnesty International and the Civil Service.

Result CIC was started in 2012, immediately establishing an Inclusion Fund where profits can be used to provide free coaching for people not normally able to access it.

Via this inclusion fund, Result CIC are welcoming frontline workers who might be feeling the strain of the current situation to get in touch.

Says Hormoz:

'At a time when the physical health of our frontline workers has rightly been highlighted, there is a danger of missing another important aspect. This is the immense pressures and stresses that they are put under because of current circumstances.

Coaching offers a way for people to be heard and seen in a safe non-judgemental way. It may just be off loading or wanting to gain perspective to deal with tough challenges. Whatever the conversation, people say it really helps them to talk.'

Jane adds:
'Result CIC exists to support people who feel excluded. Few experiences are as isolating as having to work in demanding, stressful circumstances and be apart from your loved ones when most of society is at home. Drawing on our inclusion fund to offer coaching support on a flexible basis, online or by phone - was a no-brainer. We are really looking forward to helping out.’
