Fosterplus Ayr Recognised for Improving Health & Wellbeing of Workforce

29 April, 2019 Healthy Working Lives Awards

We’re pleased to announce that our Ayr centre has been recognised for their hard work in helping to improve the health and wellbeing of staff.

For the fifth year running, the team have achieved a Bronze Award in the Healthy Working Lives award programme, which recognises the achievements of promoting a healthier, more motivated, and productive workforce and helps them move forward in a structured and supported way.

The centre ensures that staff are offered healthy options at work including bottles of water and fruit on visits, as well as providing the opportunity to engage in training events relating to physical and mental health.

The training events also allow staff to take time to read, do puzzles, knit, chat or just simply relax.

The award reinforces our vision of providing a healthy environment for staff to flourish in their roles and ultimately improve long term outcomes for children in care.

Fosterplus Ayr Team Manager, Sharon Telfer, said: “The Healthy Working Lives award programme is a great opportunity for us to promote and improve the health and wellbeing of our team.

“As a fostering agency, we are committed to health and wellbeing and we are so proud to achieve this award again and will be working towards achieving our sixth consecutive award in 2020.”
