PEER SUPPORT PROGRAM FOR PILOTS BY PILOTS
Welcome to CONNECT, the Virgin Group Pilot Peer Support Program. CONNECT is a dedicated internal confidential support group for pilots by pilots. CONNECT has trained CONNECT Coordinators and Volunteers at all bases as well as professional medical and psychological support. CONNECT provides a point of connection to someone who can listen, who is empathetic, non judgmental and importantly cares.
CONNECT Coordinators and Volunteers are fellow pilots who offer support in an informal and secure way. Peer support is vital as it is those that travel the similar journey by day, by week, by year, who are most likely to empathise, understand and relate to the challenges faced by others. CONNECT Coordinators and Volunteers are not counsellors or psychologists, but have access a range of resources to assist.
CONNECT provides support for any pilot struggling with issues at work or home. Call CONNECT to talk about work pressure, fatigue, stress, financial concerns, health concerns, family, career, relationships, depression, anxiety, substance addiction issues, and more. Don’t struggle on alone. Make the connection and start a conversation to help move forward.
