By signing the mental health at work commitment CARE has committed to achieving better mental health outcomes and a genuine longer term positive impact on staff’s wellbeing, joining a growing movement of over 1000 organisations including Avon, BT, Barclays, B&Q and many more.
At CARE we want to ensure that all of our staff and volunteers have a safe environment to thrive, so we have planned a programme of Wellbeing & Development days with the first having taken place in August. This included staff training, team building and we even created our own little self soothing goody bag which everyone went away with. We have more planned including the next which takes a closer look at Dementia and how we can best support those accessing our project who suffer from memory loss. The CARE team will take part in several memory walks to support the dementia society this autumn.
CARE has also established a safe online place for staff where regular information will be uploaded to support both their wellbeing and development at work. This will include training videos, useful links, a safe place to share with others and much more.
