Workplace wellbeing volunteers
In addition to the core team, there are also a number of workplace wellbeing volunteers within the company.
These are colleagues who, like several members of the workplace wellbeing team, have undergone First Aid in Mental Health training, delivered by MHScot Workplace Wellbeing.
Our workplace wellbeing volunteers currently include:
