Within this session we will hear from three different speakers, each of whom has worked within staff well-being services locally, inputting at individual or organisational levels.

Drawing from their experiences, speakers will visit the intimate relationship between work and well-being, exploring how both can impact on the other; discuss some of the ways in which they have offered support to staff and reflect on the joys and challenges encountered in doing so. There will also be an opportunity to consider (and perhaps even try out!) some ways to support our own well-being at work. 

Please see the programme tab for further information.
