  • Employee Assistance Programme offering confidential advice and support 24/7, plus access to a virtual GP and free eye tests 
  • Wagestream?– an app that gives you access to a percentage of your pay as you earn it 
  • YuLife – an app that rewards your for exercising with discounts and vouchers for all kinds of brands
