Advice & Emotional Support

Losing your job is one of the most stressful things that can happen in your life. You have lost your main source of income, your daily relationships, structure and sense of purpose. Some people choose to ignore how they feel and then become more stressed as their feelings begin to overwhelm them. You may experience some or all of the stages associated with grieving as you have lost something so valuable.

Your emotions probably feel like a rollercoaster at the moment. You might feel angry, shocked, depressed or frustrated. It is important that you recognise these feelings but stay focussed, positive and take the first steps in moving on with your life.

The best support you can receive is through advice and information from other people who have experienced redundancy or dismissal. You can chat with other people who are going through the same experience as you on our forum.
