Carol Keller, communications director at Ben – the charity and support service for the automotive sector

Political and economic unpredictability and accelerating advances in automotive technology make for a less certain future, creating an increasingly pressured environment for people working in the automotive industry – with today’s announcement from Honda only testament to this.

In a challenging world, the lifeblood of the industry – its people – must come first. As the automotive sector’s charity and support service, we’ve seen a significant increase in people worried about their mental health & wellbeing, with money problems including debt also a concern. Job losses can be a catalyst for these issues and spark a ripple effect that impacts family dependents, too. The strain of losing one job, and pressure to find another, while balancing other demands, can leave skilled people feeling stuck and anxious. We support those people, and their family dependents, with life’s toughest challenges.

If you or anyone you know has been affected by the impact of job losses within the automotive industry, Ben is here to help. It’s free & confidential. Call us on 08081 311 333 or visit to start a webchat with an adviser.
