About this event

Over the past few years, employee health and wellbeing has been rising up the agenda for employers in the UK. A key aspect of this is the overall mental and physical health of staff, as organisations depend on having a healthy and productive workforce to deliver their objectives effectively.  A 2017 survey from the mental health charity Mind of over 12,000 employees across the public and private sectors revealed that workplace wellbeing support needs greater emphasis and attention across the public sector.

This event offers public finance professionals the opportunity to hear from a variety of speakers who will provide some insight and ideas to focus on personal wellbeing and resilience, and the cost to organisations, including some helpful tools to support you and your staff within the workplace.

Andrew Tamplin worked for over 20 years in senior management for a number of FTSE 100 companies. Following his own personal experiences overcoming mental health issues, he now owns and runs Canna Consulting, specialising in workplace wellbeing and mental health training. During this session we will look at simple, yet effective methods to understand your own wellbeing and that of others around you. 

This event will not only look at the importance of health and wellbeing for individuals within the workplace but also very importantly the wider impact and issues arising from mental health in terms of the delivery of our public services. 

Chief Constable Mark Collins will be speaking as the National Police Chiefs Council lead for mental health. 

The event will also explore the value of early intervention on issues and how prevention and positive activity can pay dividends for organisations. Adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) are traumatic experiences that occur before the age of 18 and are remembered throughout adulthood. Cymru Well Wales has committed to addressing ACEs and their impact in Wales by making all public services in Wales able to respond effectively to prevent and mitigate the harms from ACEs, and by building protective factors and resilience in the local community. 

Kelly McFayden will be speaking as Training and Skills Development Lead for the ACE support hub.

Hosted at the National Botanic Gardens in Carmarthen, the event will start at 10.30 with a light lunch provided. A tour of the botanic gardens will be provided to delegates to conclude the event.

This is a FREE CPD event for members of CIPFA Cymru-Wales and spaces are limited so please book early to avoid disappointment.
