Promoting good health and wellbeing of our people is one of our four goals in the #WeCareTogether People Plan for Norfolk and Waveney. Protecting the physical and emotional wellbeing of our people is even more critical since the Covid-19 crisis
There are a lot of resources and support available which in itself can be a bit overwhelming! To help, here you can find links to both national offers of support as well as some local interventions focusing on physical, mental, social/family, and financial wellbeing.
Norfolk and Waveney Health & Care Partnership and Active Norfolk have teamed up to launch
a one-month #Active2gether workplace challenge for all Health and Social Care staff this summer.
The theme this year is about getting out-and-about and reconnecting with nature to help
promote physical fitness and good mental health to ensure staff wellbeing is supported as they continue the fight against COVID-19.
With lockdown measures easing, we will feature a new theme each week in June on how to stay active whether you are working from home or on the move outdoors. We will be promoting resources, offering hints and tips to help you stick to your plan and enjoy the benefits of staying active in and around Norfolk.
There is also a photo competition for you to share your activity!
Whether you take your pet for a long walk, slog through a half marathon or even take the plunge in the Norfolk Sea, be sure to capture a photo and use #Active2gether and we’ll share your creativity across our socials.
Photos will be judged and prizes will be announced at the end of the campaign.
We have Health & Wellbeing Leads for each part of the organisation. We’ve included a list on the following link.

During these unusual and difficult times it is important to be kind to ourselves and ensure our energy and focus is in the right place.
Why not take a few moments to write down your worries and concerns to see where they fit in the circle of influence.
