CALL FOR EVIDENCE: Supporting inclusive workplaces for everyone – Health Related Pathways to Work

A Health and Wellbeing Alliance project, led by Homeless Link and Win/Win Alliance involving ERSA and Making Every Adult Matter (MEAM), is supporting Public Health England (PHE)’s Health and Work team to work towards inclusive workplaces for everyone.

The project will produce resources to help employers embed good practice approaches supporting disabled people, people with long term health conditions and/or people from protected characteristic groups towards, into and to stay in work.

Organisations can send examples of their work using the template in this Call For Evidence paper. The good practice and success stories will be brought together as an online Directory that will be shared with employers, to be hosted on the ERSA website. Please return examples to policy@ersa.org.uk by Friday 19 October 2018.

In addition, we are inviting employers across the voluntary, community, social enterprise and the public sectors to join an initiative that will bring together a group who will commit to being part of a pilot programme aimed at embedding positive attitudes towards employing and supporting people with long term conditions and disabled people. More information is available here. If you are interested in this initiative, or if you would like more information, please contact Philipa Bragman, CEO of CHANGE at philipa@changepeople.org or 01132426619.

If you have any questions about the research, please contact Michaela.DesForges@homelesslink.org.uk

NHS Health and Wellbeing Framework

We are pleased to let you know that the new NHS Workforce Health and Wellbeing Framework is now available. This is the result of two years’ work with NHS organisations, NHS Employers, NHS Improvement, Public Health England and a range of voluntary sector and government partners. 

The Framework will support NHS organisations to improve the health and wellbeing of their staff through an easy to use diagnostic tool and a comprehensive range of guidance against fourteen core organisational enablers and health interventions proven to improve staff health and wellbeing. This will enable NHS organisations to develop comprehensive health and wellbeing plans and evaluate improvement over time. 

The Framework and accompanying diagnostic tool are now available on the NHS Employers website and communications through established channels to NHS organisations will roll out from Monday 21st May accompanied by social media support.
