Support caring, and cared for staff

We want to support projects that:

  • Target wellbeing support for staff groups that are identified as having the greatest need (e.g. those working in highly pressurised clinical areas, working alone within the community, lowest paid and junior staff, and international staff).

  • Create spaces open to all team members in areas that lack convenient access to a dedicated staff area and/or refreshments.

  • Fund educational opportunities for staff to enhance their skills so they can provide better care to patients and their loved ones, with compassion and kindness.
