At our June SVA Advisory Board Meeting we discussed some ongoing concerns in the VA community that there was very little access to supervision or counselling if VAs required it. This is a very real concern, particularly when VAs are working alone and isolated from the support of others, and some VAs are working on emotionally difficult material too. So, after some discussion, the idea of offering access to a benefits package that revolved around wellbeing was born, and Pirkx was recommended as a provider.
Fast-forward two months and here we are. So….
The SVA is absolutely delighted to offer all our members a fantastic opportunity to sign up for a wellbeing benefits package with Pirkx for only £4.50 per month (or £45 per year), with no minimum contract length. And once you are signed up, you will have access to all of the following, plus much more…
- 24/7 GP booking helpline
- 24/7 dedicated telephone counselling service
- Discounted gym memberships & virtual gym classes for all abilities
- Virtual and physical physio
- Mental health resilience training
- Courses for a lifelong learning
- Guidance on financial wellness
- Discounts on big brand shopping, cinema tickets, holidays, plus loads more
- Free monthly Pirkx lotto entries and competitions
So, what do you do next?
We will send you an invite (if you are already a member you will have received it on the 15th August or if you are a new member we will send you an invite separately). If you would like to join Pirkx, simply follow the instructions on that email, and it will walk you through step by step (but do keep an eye out in your spam folder if it doesn’t appear). If you haven’t received an email, please drop us an email at [email protected] so we can ensure you get the opportunity to join.
If you are on the fence or not sure what it involves, we will be holding an information webinar on Thursday 17th August at 2pm, where we will be joined by Ben from Pirkx, who will talk about the benefits and how to get the best out of it, plus help with any sign-up queries.
We really are over the moon to partner with Pirkx and make this available to our members, and we hope that this provides you all with the wellbeing benefits that will support you.
