We recognise the benefits and impact that good health and wellbeing has on our employees.

Wellbeing is the state of being comfortable, healthy or happy and can be influenced by a range of factors including:

  • Career and work factors
  • Emotional factors
  • Financial factors
  • Health factors
  • Social factors

Whilst these factors are both work and non-work related, we will create a workplace that supports our employees in improving and maintaining their own health and wellbeing.

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The coronavirus outbreak has turned all our lives upside down. Things we once took for granted like hugging a friend or visiting a relative in their own home are no longer allowed. We can't underestimate the impact this is having on us mentally and physically.

Feelings of boredom, frustration and loneliness may start to creep in and anxiety and worry over our own health and that of our loved ones will be foremost in our minds. Now more than ever it's important to take care of ourselves, mind and body.

In this section you'll find resources to support you through the ups and downs of the coming weeks and months.

If there's something you feel we've missed or you want to highlight resources you've found useful that you feel could help others, please email because it's good to share and care.
