Ben is the charity dedicated to supporting the people of the automotive industry, providing support for life for them and their family dependents.

Ben supports individuals to navigate through life’s challenges, empowering them to make positive, lasting change. Ben works with people to  improve their lives by enhancing their health and wellbeing through its free and confidential online self-help, helpline and support services.

Ben provides life-changing support to those facing crisis as well as helping them prevent crisis. Ben’s support empowers people to be more in control of managing their health and wellbeing to help them live well, think well, feel well and work well. Ben’s support is tailored and relevant to the needs of the individual, based on a wide range of support options and addressing every aspect of a person’s life.

In the centre of everyone’s life is their personal ‘health’ and ‘wellbeing’ which they alone are responsible for managing as they navigate through life. However, sometimes everyone needs some extra support and guidance to get them through any unexpected bumps in the road. This is where Ben comes in.

With Ben’s support and guidance, automotive industry people can overcome obstacles and challenges at any point in their lives. Ben supports and empowers people to navigate their way through crisis, which could be having a negative impact on their health,  providing coping strategies and help to manage their personal wellbeing. Ben is an extension of support from a person’s own network, providing ‘support for life’ and supporting people in a holistic way, with a ‘whole person’ and ‘needs focused’ approach.

Ben first seeks to understand a person’s challenges and identify the causes of the underlying issues affecting their quality of life, health and wellbeing and then develops a tailored action plan to support them. Ben then provides the relevant support and tools for each individual, with a range of potential support options, giving them control and choice over how they are supported, as well as providing the stability they need to make any changes needed.

Ben supports people with stress, mental health conditions including anxiety and depression and helps people to get their lives back on track when they face life challenges such as money problems, loneliness and bereavement.

A designated case manager works with each individual, focusing on solutions and monitoring progress on an ongoing basis. This enables Ben to evidence progress against a set of ‘distance travelled’ markers and see where positive change has been made. The focus is on celebrating outcomes, empowering people to take control.
