Health Promotion Service, Redruth

At the Health Promotion Service, we have set up a workplace health working group, conducted two health at work questionnaires and have been trying to look at how we can improve the health of our staff!

We have a great team and to date we now have a ‘Kernow Building Gardening Club’, ‘A Choir’ and have organised a wide range of activities, taster sessions and events including:

  • Healthy Lunchtime Walks
  • Step-o-meter Challenge
  • Honesty Snack Box
  • Physical Activity Sessions -
  • Massage & Reflexology sessions
  • Introducing a Mentoring Scheme
  • Love Yourself, Look after Your Heart
  • Active Travel Days
  • Delivery of  'Healthy Boxes' weekly
  • Craft sessions
  • Obtained two pool bikes
  • Dedicated Health at Work notice board
  • Entered a team in the 2009 Race for Life!

We hold regular workplace health working group meetings and our aim is to continue to try and improve staff health and well-being here at Health Promotion.

I was in my previous post for nearly six years and there was no workplace health programme at all.

When I started here and found what is available to staff, often delivered by other staff, I was really impressed and have been trying all sorts of things!

 “We have learned so much through the Cornwall Workplace Health Award Programme already, and are keen that we pass this learning on to our staff.  With many organisations already represented, we were surprised we haven’t got involved sooner as it’s so aligned to our overall ‘Wellbeing Ambition’ that working for the Environment Agency will improve health and wellbeing”
