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 monthly basis, following which an update is emailed to all staff.

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

The NIPEC Supported Charity for 2019/20 is the Welcome Centre for the Homeless.

This year the programme of activities consist of:

10,000 Step Challenge

Halloween Soupalicious Event

Christmas Fireside Quiz
