Mental Health

Qualified Mental Health First Aiders

As part of our commitment to mental health and wellbeing we have a number of qualified mental health first aiders within the business to support and guide our workforce. This acts as part of our business objectives demonstrating how this is a priority for the business, as we understand the impact of mental health and wellbeing upon our overall health and wellbeing of our employees. Ensuring there is suitable support readily available is key to enable us to support our staff which is why our business objectives target the percentage of qualified mental health first aiders within our workforce. We already have 10% of the workforce trained, and are aiming to have 25% of the workforce trained by the end of the business year in October.
