Positive Practice Awards update!
News has reached us from the national Positive Practice Awards
HQ that we have a third finalist in this year's awards!
The Walking Challenge, in which 62 teams of staff took part back
in the Spring, has shortlisted in the Mental Wellbeing of Staff
The Walking Challenge joins Bristol Boxfit and the HMP YOI
Portland substance misuse team's Inside Recovery Programme in the
finals of this year's awards.
Sue Hine, health and wellbeing manager, conceived the Walking
Challenge in response to the staff survey, as a way for staff to
help manage stress levels through physical activity and to give
people a focus to encourage them to take breaks during the working
day. This simple concept proved incredibly popular and additional
supplies of pedometers had to be secured to meet demand.
Congratulations to everyone involved in developing the Walking
Challenge and making it a big success.
