Wellbeing Buddies Scheme Launched at Muntons

Wellbeing Buddies Scheme Launched at Muntons

The scheme, which is the first of its kind at Muntons, saw a recruitment drive launched during Mental Health Awareness Week in May. Since then, ten team members have kindly agreed to be available to their colleagues in times of need, for support or simply a chat, and we have given them training.

The Wellbeing Buddies, who represent most areas across Muntons, are available for chats, fitness advice, financial support and can signpost to more formal support such as counselling services via an employee

assistance programme.

Thes culture and policies at Muntons ensure team members treat everybody with the respect they deserve; and by running a scheme like the Wellbeing Buddies, opportunities are opening up to remind everybody that the business cares and that it's encouraged for colleagues to speak with confidence and dignity about their mental health.

If you are living with mental health difficulties, or know somebody who is, there are services and organisations available to help. For further information, just click here.
