Why has Absolutely Cultured joined Working Voices
The creative industries are packed with passionate people who often work in a pressured environment to generate art in all forms.
It’s fair to say that for the majority of projects and events the journey and the result is beyond rewarding; but what we’re encouraging and what we’re beginning to see now is an increase in promoting good wellbeing and an awareness of mental health issues across the arts sector in the UK in order to prevent and recognise people at risk, or projects which may increase levels of stress or other triggers that might negatively impact wellbeing.
When we heard about the Working Voices Scheme we were very keen to learn more and to sign up to it. The Scheme offers support and information across a wide range of health topics and will empower our staff to access support and activities. Staff will also have the opportunity to have their voice heard on NHS issues that affect them within their community.
