Happiness is a subjective concept depending on your personal circumstances, including but not limited to the workplace. Here at NWAS we understand this and want to create and maintain a thriving working environment where everyone can flourish.

Managers are being trained to create a mentally healthy workplace, whilst staff are encouraged to be more self-aware and acknowledge what makes them happy and how to use coping strategies to help in difficult times.

This page will explore wellbeing in various ways:

  • Personal development
  • Resilience
  • Financial wellbeing
  • Positive mental health
  • Helping others

Rekindle - New dates, family welcome

Helping others – Paramedic Elizabeth Church has set up a fantastic network for all staff to join and be apart of. Check out her story and get in contact to be apart of something great!

Elizabeth Church – My idea behind it is simple, we have a tough job which gets ever busier with little time to reflect. We attend a wide variety of jobs all stressful in their own way. We have an ever changing workforce and for newer staff in reserve, who don’t have a permanent base, it’s hard to form friendships, which is definitely something we need in this environment.
