Resources

In this section we will publish links to useful resources, both internal and external.

Our Managers Essentials pages contain a piece of guidance entitled How to support a member of staff diagnosed with cancer.  They also have Parents and Carers  pages which could prove useful too.

There is also guidance for Supporting Staff with a Caring Responsibility and a Carers' Policy.

Our Wellbeing Blog also contains relevant submissions.

People may also benefit from the support offered by Occupational Health or the Counselling Service.
