Health and Wellbeing for the Humber, Coast and Vale Workforce

A number of health and wellbeing programmes have been developed and are available to all staff across Humber, Coast and Vale, in addition to those in your own organisation.

A Coaching Network is also being introduced to encourage established coaches to work together across Humber, Coast and Vale.

See below for further information.

Programme of events for desk based staff

We are delivering a programme of virtual sessions to support the health and wellbeing of staff who are primarily desk-based. We will offer a range of sessions, some of which are webinars and some of which are practical sessions, however, all the sessions are accessible to people of all abilities.

There are clear and evidence-based links to the benefits of undertaking exercise to improve our mental and physical wellbeing yet many of us do not take time out during the working day to do this. Our virtual sessions are an invitation for you to take some time to support your own health and wellbeing and are open to all staff in Humber, Coast and Vale.

What's on offer?

During July, August and September we have a range of webinars including postural awareness, working at home and healthy habits. There are also a number of practical sessions which look at Self-Care and Relaxation for Office Workers, Back Pain, Reflexology for Office Workers, Movement for Positivity Class and Chair based Yoga Class. For more details on each of the sessions as well as the dates and times please  click here. If the sessions prove successful we have an exciting programme ready to run from October!

Who can sign up?

Anyone working in Humber, Coast and Vale! Although the sessions are aimed at colleagues who work at a desk for the majority of the working day all staff are welcome to attend. Please note that this offer is available to colleagues from our social care, voluntary sector, local authority partner organisations as well as our NHS workforce.

How do I sign up?

You can book a place on any of the sessions by completing a Booking Form. A confirmation with the session link will then be sent to you prior to the session running.

You will notice that we are asking questions that monitor the diversity of those booking a place, this is to check whether our sessions are inclusive and reaching the full extent of our workforce or whether we need to do things differently next time to improve.

What if I cant attend?

If you can’t attend a session we will record the sessions and make them available for a limited time.

If you have booked a place but can no longer attend please email [email protected] so that your place can be offered to someone on the waiting list. We have limited places available and want to enable as many people to participate as possible therefore please secure and protect the dates and times in your diary.

Trauma Recovery and Stress Reduction Workshops

Rising levels of chronic stress, anxiety, PTSD and burnout have been reported across health and social care in the last year and we want to recognise this and provide additional support to colleagues who are experiencing a negative impact on their wellbeing – whether that’s at work or at home.

We have arranged for some Trauma Recovery and Stress Reduction workshops to take place in September and October.
