The Regional Workforce Wellbeing Network has been working across organisations over Covid-19 to coordinate and share resources, strategies and supports in order to best support each other during this very challenging time. We are continuing to work post-covid, as part of the Healthier Workplaces, to keep the needs of staff support to the fore.
A range of resources have been developed by the Network and we hope that they might be helpful for all our colleagues across organisations and teams; and also to use individually. These include a Covid Recovery Toolkit , a Recovery infographic and slides which can be accessed on the Staff Health and Wellbeing SharePoint.
Our Health & Wellbeing Champion, Emma, is responsible for organising our Monthly Mail. These flyers are sent to our staff throughout the SFSU, providing some info on our schemes, motivational quotes and ideas to help encourage a healthier lifestyle.
