The first episode is out now and is available through all major podcast services.
Director of Communications, Jon Reeves said: “Our colleagues work every day to improve the lives of our customers.
“Our new 2025 improving lives strategy, which launched at the beginning of July, focuses on the two areas of health and wellbeing and economic resilience, and it’s important that we showcase all the support services that our customers and our colleagues can access.
