Our Health and Social Wellbeing Committee was set up in 2015 with a remit to address the need within NIPEC to:

• provide direction and oversight for health and social wellbeing activities for staff
• develop, co-ordinate and monitor a programme of activities for the year which helps to improve health and wellbeing and develops mutual respect
• evaluate and review progress against the programme of activities, seeking feedback from staff
• where necessary, ensure that effective policies and procedures are in place to support the programme of activities and these are available to all staff
• provide regular updates and an end of year report to the Business Team and to the wider organisation.

The Committee comprises of corporate and professional staff who meet on a regular basis, following which an update is emailed to all staff.

We would like to thank Mrs Caroline Lecky for her time as Chair and commitment to the Committee.  Caroline has now stepped down as Chair of the Committee and we would welcome Ms Fiona Bradley as the new Chair.

The Membership of the Committee consists of:

  • Fiona Bradley (Chair)
