Staff health and wellbeing

We want to ensure that all our staff are supported to feel their best.


Our staff health and wellbeing programme provides all First Community staff with the opportunity to engage in a number of health and wellbeing related activities. For example, we currently have a regular netball and walking group. We actively encourage staff to take their lunch breaks and not to schedule meetings over the lunch period.  Staff also have access to an Employee Assistance Programme which provides confidential 24 hour support 7 days a week on a wide range of personal and work related difficulties.

Our health and wellbeing programme includes dedicated wellbeing focus months throughout the year. During these months activities are arranged across our sites and resources shared to encourage staff to try something new and make a positive lasting change to their health and wellbeing.
