Tigers Trust working in partnership with Hull CCG Working Voices +15th December 2016
At Tigers Trust we have a workforce of around 40 full and part time members of staff, a large cohort of volunteers and participants,therefore we believe we are an integral organisation to get involved with the NHS Hull CCG Working Voices programme.
Matt Conway, Tigers Trust Programme Manager, was very keen to to sign up to Working Voices and commented:
“We want our workforce to know that as an organisation we care about their health and wellbeing. For us, Working Voices will help us to support our staff by providing useful health and wellbeing opportunities to them, and we will be supported by the CCG in doing so.”
One area of focus for Working Voices is that of consultation and engagement. We will work with NHS Hull CCG to ensure the right communications techniques are identified, meaning our workforce are given opportunities to get involved in consultation activities and have their voice heard.
“The chance for our workforce to contribute their views to the CCG, when consulting about local health care issues, is also something we value. We are excited to be one of the first local businesses to sign up to Working Voices.”
Already, a need for mental health first aid awareness training has been identified, with specific training due to be provided for the Working Voices Champion and an in-house briefing due to be arranged for the entire workforce.
Further information about the collaboration between NHS Hull CCG and the Tigers Trust will be shared as the Working Voices programme develops.
