Health and Wellbeing support

A happy and healthy workforce is a productive one, and that is essential for us to be able to serve the people of County Durham well.

Wellbeing is defined as feeling good and functioning well physically, mentally, and socially. We all experience a sense of wellbeing differently and as an employer, we want to support every member of staff to feel and function at their best.
