Please describe how you have provided information and support on health and wellbeing for young people in your organisation over the last year. This may include information on any induction arrangements for new staff/young people and any benefits that have accrued. There is a 2000-character limit when completing this section.
In 2014/15 LCH have been committed to ensure that all staff, inclusive of our younger workforce attend brief intervention training (Every Contact Counts) which raises awareness of the importance of positive mental and physical health for staff and patients. This programme was included as part of a Traineeship initiative that the Trust facilitated for a group of 16-24 year olds to support them in gaining employment.
All staff have access to all health and wellbeing initiatives via our LCH Health and wellbeing directorate, ‘the Wellbeing Wheel.’ The wheel directorate signposts staff to range of initiatives and an abundance of health information. Services include our staff smoking services, physical activity interventions, staff support and Occupational health Providers, Information on local and national campaigns and other health and wellbeing services.
In addition to this, staff are encouraged to become ‘Public Health Ambassadors’ for the organisation to promote wellbeing to the wider workforce and support colleagues to take positive measures to look after their health.
