Workplace Health Staffordshire

Staffordshire County Council are supporting businesses across Staffordshire to improve their staff’s health and wellbeing.  (Please note, this excludes businesses based in Stoke-on-Trent).

They can offer your business a range of free support and guidance, including:

  • Workplace Health Staffordshire webpages

These webpages cover a range of health and wellbeing topics.  They highlight resources including toolkits, local and national campaigns, tools, websites, training and support services.

  • Healthy lifestyle support

Support your staff to get more active, stop smoking and lose weight, with Everyone Health Staffordshire’s free 12-week programmes.  Restrictions apply.

  • Mental health training

Fully funded Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) training is being delivered by Altruist Enterprises.  Plus, free access to online suicide prevention training.

  • ‘Thrive at Work’ Workplace Wellbeing Awards Programme

‘Thrive at Work’ is run by the West Midlands Combined Authority.  It’s a free, structured awards programme, where your business is recognised for improving the health and wellbeing of your employees.

If you’re a small or medium business in Staffordshire and you would like to discuss further support available, please get in touch by emailing: WorkplaceHealth@staffordshire.gov.uk

From May this year, a virtual training module entitled ‘Making Every Contact Count’ will be available. 

This will be aimed at ensuring that front line staff are competent and confidant in delivering healthy life style messages in a way that is people centred and unintrusive, to help encourage people to change their behaviour and to direct them to local services that can support them

Once covid restrictions allow, we would be happy to look at delivering this module in person to interested organisations.
