Staying Well at Work

Project description

Supporting the health and wellbeing of staff and small to medium sized businesses in Rhondda Cynon Taf.

Led by Rhondda, Cynon Taf County Borough Council, Staying Well at Work offers support to MSME’s within RCT to ensure all those employed in the Local Authority area have access to equitable ‘in work’ support services which pay particular attention to the wellbeing needs of individuals and the development of supportive Policies.

Staying Well at Work offers a proactive and integrated approach which supports the prevention of physical and mental ill health, whilst supporting rehabilitation and the management of long-term conditions. We provide clinical support to improve daily functioning and symptom management to enable people to return to or continue to work.

The project aims to provide Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises with Human Resource support to develop Absence and Equality and Diversity Policies, and in doing so the Project aims to improve the conditions of people’s employment and provide individuals with support from a full range of Occupational Health Specialists.
