Training &  Professional Development


Employers are increasingly under pressure to improve on quality for both service users and staff.

Looking after the health and wellbeing of your team along with ensuring that service users get the best possible outcome can be a difficult balancing act when
resources are limited.

You may have noticed increased absenteeism or be conscious of personality differences within your team. Alternatively you may be aware that your staff would benefit from specialist input in relation to issues facing your service users.

Put simply:- Helping your staff to be the best they can be is good for business. Recent statistics support this and include the following:

of respondents do not believe their employer supports or cares about their mental health


of employee respondents experience workplace stress and anxiety over the summer months; this increases to 70% among working parents(

of employers do not currently offer any form of mental wellbeing education or support; this has decreased compared with 18% in 2018, and 16% in 2017
