Specialist child exploitation charity Safe and Sound has become the first organisation to be awarded cash from a new fund designed to improve and support staff wellbeing.

The funding of up to £10,000 was awarded to the charity through the British Safety Council’s Keep Thriving campaign, which aims to improve workplace wellbeing.

Safe and Sound supports and protects young people and families across Derbyshire whose lives have been affected by child exploitation.

Back in November last year, the charity’s chief executive, Tracy Harrison, attended a workshop delivered by experts from the British Safety Council’s Being Well Together programme to help her and other SMEs develop a wellbeing strategy.

Attendees are then invited to apply for funding six months after the workshops, with only the most effective and innovative proposals receiving approval.

Tracy said: “I’m delighted that our work to support our amazing team, who in turn work so hard to support children, young people and their families in our local community, has been recognised in this way.

“As a charity, we champion diversity, personal development and inclusivity, and our team represents the local communities that we serve.

“This grant will enable us to implement our wide-reaching strategy to ensure the wellbeing of our staff, who do an incredible job in sometimes the most challenging of circumstances, and we are extremely grateful to British Safety Council’s Keep Thriving campaign for its support.

“Initiatives we are planning as part of our new wellbeing strategy include bespoke training, team building and wellbeing workshops.”
