If signs of stress go unnoticed, even a small problem can quickly escalate
We all know that prevention is better than cure. And this is certainly true for staff care. In fact, one study showed that an organisation can save £5 for every £1 it spends on preventative psychosocial wellbeing. Spotting problems early, and doing the right things in response, can help solve problems before they grow, and build a healthier workplace culture in the process.
A good peer support programme is a great way to help your team do this.
Workplace relationships can be a cause of strife and make existing problems worse. Or they can boost morale and help staff meet challenges. A peer support programme can help make that difference.

We Will tailor Our Training to your needs
When you work in a tough and complex situation, having a good colleague can make a world of difference. One who understands the challenges you face. Who listens with empathy. And who knows the best ways to support you. Sign up for peer support training and we will:
- Create a plan tailored to your team’s needs and context
- Help you identify which staff members would make for good peer supporters
- Train them to recognise when a colleague is facing a wellbeing issue
- Teach them ways to offer practical help, and to signpost to further support when needed
A good peer supporter can be a lifeline to their colleagues. And a good peer support scheme can boost the wellbeing of your whole team.
