The Health in Workplaces programme focuses on promoting health and wellbeing and the role employers from across the borough can play in supporting their employees to protect and improve their health and wellbeing.

We will be looking to engage a range of partners from across Warrington who will support employers to develop a range of health and wellbeing interventions.

The programme will support workplaces in embedding health and wellbeing into their practices and policies, helping to equip organisations and to provide a supportive environment to their employees.

We will also encourage workplaces to make a pledge to a Workplace Charter. This will demonstrate an employer’s commitment to improving and protecting the health and wellbeing of its employees.

We will work collaboratively across organisational boundaries and disciplines to secure place based improvements that are tailored to local needs and assets.

For more information please email the Public Health Team.

Get your workplace involved!

We are committed to improving and protecting the health and wellbeing of people in Warrington. One of the ways in which we aim to do this is via consulting with our workplaces to ensure that we can make the right decisions about the support and services we provide to help our population live a healthier life.

If you would like to be involved or someone to contact you from the public health team, get in touch using the following survey:

Long COVID in the workplace

Long-COVID symptoms can vary from day-to-day and in severity, and it can affect someone’s ability to complete tasks, which can in turn have an impact on work. This should be considered when thinking about the type of support that can be offered to employees and what is feasible within the workplace, including:

  • Altering working arrangements – including hours or location
  • Making adaptations to the workplace
  • Having regular conversations with colleagues to see how they are getting on
  • Phased returns to work, or referrals to occupational health/ support services

Training courses

One of the main benefits of the Workplace Wellbeing Charter is access to the local public health training page and training opportunities. If you have signed up to the charter, you can visit the Warrington Training Hub website for health and wellbeing resources, e-learning and bookable face to face courses.
