Health and social care is one of five sectors that will be specifically targeted in a new campaign aimed at helping small businesses with easy to implement advice, including simple steps to introduce the principles of the stress management standards.
Launched by Sarah Albon, chief executive of the Health and Safety Executive, at the HSE Health and Work Conference earlier this month, Working Minds raises awareness about how to recognise and respond to the signs of stress to protect workers and support good mental health to help people to stay well.

They want to survey all physiotherapists from across the UK, from all specialities and all grades.

Professional Networks Funding (Round 2) Oct - Nov 2021
From the CSP Professional Networks office:
From feedback in April both internally and externally, the process for submitting in the second round remains the same as April this year. A short pre-recorded video will therefore be required and this replaces the 1000 word written application that had been requested in previous years. We have used a similar format for other types of submission in the CSP, and feel this would allow PN’s to not only explain the project in more detail, but also to get across more information than 1000 word limit that was previously in place. The guidance document has also been reviewed again, and we hope to have added more detail with regards to what we are looking for, in terms of the scoring of the projects in order to offer out funding.
