How well employees feel at work is crucially important to their well being and productivity. Spending time in green spaces has a multitude of benefits to both physical and mental wellbeing.
The Centre for Sustainable Healthcare has designed a series of intervention based workshops with individual health care trusts and businesses to enable people to access green spaces to benefit their health at work.
What we do:
We run workshops in each region to Engage, Inspire, Act (behaviour change), Thrive. We link with policy leads at Public Health England, the Department of Health and NHS Employees to ensure greater focus on greenspace at work for health
Locally we run detailed interventions (see "our workshop offer" below) as well as publicity campaigns and communication acorss key sites. We are very keen to partner with organisations near or at current NHS Forest sites, but also work with other medical faciltiies or workplaces.
Our workshop offer
- A focus on removing the barriers to creating behaviour change
- Suggested interventions that could be utilised
- Inspiring case studies
- Troubleshooting issues and how to solve them.
We work closely with senior managers within the trust to design interventions and to ensure that they are well publicised and utilised. Monitoring and evaluation of the interventions to determine their success will also be carried out.
