The wellbeing of our officers and staff is very important to us.
We know the job can be challenging at times so, as part of the force’s Wellbeing Strategy, a senior officer is responsible for overseeing one of four strands of wellbeing; mental health, physical health, emotional health & resilience and financial health.
But there is much much more on offer including;
An in-house Occupational Health Unit
Wellbeing Champions in departments across the force
Mental Health First Aiders in departments across the force
Access to Health Assured and My Healthy Advantage app
Oscar Kilo – a national wellbeing service that helps forces build world-class wellbeing support for everyone who works for them
In-house gym facilities and fitness classes
Membership of the Force Sport and Leisure Association with heavily discounted membership at many private gyms
Leicestershire is recognised as a Menopause Friendly Employer – only the second force in the UK
A range of support networks
Cycle to Work scheme
Our staff and officers are always encouraged to speak to their line manager if they feel they need help, support or advice on any issue concerning their wellbeing and they will put you in touch with the right people to help.
