Mental health in the workplace - improving support for employers and employees

Source By: Westminster Forum Projects

Monday, 20th November 2017

Central London


This conference will be a timely opportunity to consider the further steps that can be taken by government, employers and others to improve mental health support in the workplace.

It is timed to follow the expected publication of the independent mental health and employers review, examining how best to ensure employees with mental health conditions are enabled to thrive in the workplace and perform at their best.

Delegates will discuss the challenges for implementing the review’s recommendations and the further changes that could be made by government in this important area of employment policy. At this early stage, we expect sessions to examine the proposal for a new “partnership with employers”, challenges for equipping line managers with the tools and training to best support employees and further action for tackling discrimination and stigma.

The conference will bring together policymakers with key stakeholders including representatives of employers and trade unions, mental health professionals and campaign groups, lawyers, members of the HR profession, occupational health providers, academics, and members of the national and trade press.

up to £5000 to support Affinity Sutton and Circle residents get and stay online

Clarion Digital Communities Fund

The London Community Foundation is delighted to be managing the Clarion Digital Communities Fund in 2017. Clarion is the largest housing group in the country, formed by the merger of the Affinity Sutton Group and Circle Housing in December 2016, and is committed to helping more of its residents to access services online. 

Grants of between £1,000 and £5,000 are available for charities and community organisations working across the UK to support Affinity Sutton and Circle residents of all ages to get and stay online and to build the skills, motivation and confidence to use the internet safely as an everyday tool.

The Fund is designed to address digital exclusion, and to:

  • Support Affinity Sutton and Circle residents of all ages to get and stay online and use the internet as an everyday tool in their communities
  • Support residents to discover the full scope of how the internet can assist them in their everyday lives, and to provide them with the skills and confidence to do so
  • Support residents to access the tools that meet their individual needs and circumstances
  • Encourage residents to use the internet with confidence and securely
  • Support residents of all ages, regardless of whether they go online regularly, to use it safely, and avoid risky and/or illegal behaviour

Within the scope of the Fund, we want to reach:

  • residents who have never used the internet before AND/OR
  • residents who may have previously used some online facilities but who may not be aware of the full potential to use the internet in their everyday lives, i.e. they may use Facebook but may not be aware of how the internet can be used in the workplace, for online learning, or for information on their careers, hobbies AND/OR
  • residents with limited internet skills.

Please note that the Fund is not primarily aimed at helping people to use a computer – this may be an incidental part of the project or an added benefit, however the primary aim of any project must be to support people specifically to be able to use the internet to help them in their everyday lives.

Please also note, the Fund is primarily for Affinity Sutton and Circle residents, and we would expect the majority of beneficiaries to live in Clarion properties, however projects can work to benefit the wider community too.

Please read the full guidelines below for more details, and contact us if you have any queries.

The next closing date is:

Friday 1st December 2017 @ 5pm (for projects from mid-February 2018 onwards - decisions will be released in week ending 9th February 2018).
