In addition to this we provide a range of workplace activities/opportunities such as:

  • Training and professional development

  • Health and fitness information and support

  • Participation in charity fundraising events

  • Participation in the meals on wheels program

  • Support for participation in volunteer emergency services or armed forces reserves
