The Association of Mental Health Providers (AMHP) has launched a new campaign calling for urgent support for community mental health …
In the face of pressures following Covid and in light of the current economic challenges, the health, safety and wellbeing charity has said that micro, small, and medium-sized employers can apply to get free support to improve the well-being of their workplace, through its campaign on workplace wellbeing, ‘Keep Thriving’.
Applications are currently open until 1st March.
The sessions, delivered by experts from British Safety Council’s Being Well Together programme, to help employers explore why well-being matters to them, their people and their business, and ways they can improve their well-being. The workshop helps small, medium, and micro-sized employers to develop a strategy that works and to track and evaluate their progress.
On the re-opening of the offer, Mike Robinson, Chief Executive of the British Safety Council, said, ‘We have been delighted with the response so far by SMEs and micro-sized employers to our offer of free support to improve the wellbeing of their staff. That’s why we are re-launching new applications and creating more places to attend one of our workshops this Spring.
‘We understand the pressures on small businesses, not just following the Covid pandemic but also with the high cost of energy, and as a charity, we want to do something to help.
‘Employers tell us they have found it useful to meet other like-minded organisations to discuss the challenges, opportunities, and best ways of developing a well-being strategy. We know that improving wellbeing not only boosts organisational performance it reduces the likelihood of accidents and ill-health among staff.’
Any employer with up to 500 staff can apply here.
