We look after our own
Our mission is to make a positive difference to peoples’ lives. In automotive, we look after our own. The lifeblood of the automotive industry is the people who keep it running year in, year out. We provide a free, confidential helpline and support service, working with individuals to help them navigate through the toughest of challenges, empowering individuals to make positive, lasting change.
Our year of support in numbers
Measuring our impact
“I was feeling constantly stressed and anxious at home and then I would have to go out on-call at any time of the day or night for work. It wasn’t long before I realised I couldn’t do both and decided to leave my job. After years of fighting a battle and feeling so down and depressed, I can now look to the future. The support and help from Ben has played a huge part in getting us through this. There are no words I can use to express our sincere thanks for everything that Ben has done for us.”
According to Ben's most recent industry survey:
