Working Well

Working Well is partnered by Knowsley Council and Knowsley Chamber of Commerce; the scheme is dedicated to improving the health and wellbeing of the Borough’s residents and workforce.

As a much valued business, based in Knowsley, we can offer your organisation a number of FREE services that can improve the health and wellbeing of your employees, and assist you in complying with Health and Safety legislation.

The aim of the Working Well programme is to support businesses to encourage their staff to make healthier choices in the workplace, and to ensure appropriate policies are in place to provide a healthier working environment.

Working Well is based on targeted actions around:-

  • healthy eating
  • physical activity
  • alcohol reduction
  • smoking cessation
  • mental health awareness
  • health and safety
  • Cancer awareness

Appointing a Workplace Health Champion is an important and valuable way of taking forward the health and wellbeing agenda within your company. The appointed Champion will act as a point of contact to actively promote Working Well to the staff, and can receive FREE training. Click here for more information.
