Take a look at the latest DWP Wellbeing events

With Covid restrictions lifting and life starting to return to normal, the latest Wellbeing events [DWP intranet link] recognise and celebrate the resilience colleagues have shown so far, while others will help colleagues to understand and manage any worries or anxieties they have about returning to the workplace. There’s also sessions on the risks associated with constantly being ‘plugged in’, which will help you improve your home / work boundaries, and sessions to help you develop healthy sleep habits. Separate sessions are also available for managers that will be welcoming colleagues back to the workplace to help them address any concerns those colleagues may have.

Charity for CS
Dealing with life's challenges can be hard. The Charity for Civil Servants supports civil servants, past and present, when times are tough, listening without judgement and offering practical, financial and emotional support. It’s easier when you and your family have got a whole community behind you. And that's why – and how – they exist.

The Charity for Civil Servants is a company limited by guarantee and a registered charity. The Charity is registered as The Civil Service Benevolent Fund. Their Patron is Her Majesty the Queen Elizabeth II. The Charity for Civil Servants is governed by a Board of Trustees, who are volunteers.

Carers across the Civil Service have said that accessing the right information at the right time and knowing what support is available is a challenge. The Charity has listened to them. Together with Carers UK, The Charity for Civil Servants have developed a new Digital Resource for carers.

The Digital Resource is packed full of information, guides and tools to help you manage your caring respon­sibi­lities. Highlights include:

§  A range of e-learning courses, guides and downloads covering topics such as your health, wellbeing, assistive technology and young carers

§  The Upfront Guide: a unique self-assessment tool that gives you personalised advice and information about your caring role and how the Charity may be able to support you

§  Access to the Carers UK online forum with the chance to interact with other like-minded carers

§  The Jointly App: a free to download tool to help you manage shared caring respon­sibi­lities

To access the Carers’ Digital Resource visit www.­foryoubyyou.­org.­uk/­caring
