We're a healthy workplace

The Men's Health Forum has been awarded the Healthy Workplace Charter award at commitment level.

Accredited by the Mayor London, the London Healthy Workplace Charter is 'a self-assessment framework that recognises and rewards employers for investing in workplace health and wellbeing'. It provides a series of standards for workplaces to meet in order to create a health-enhancing workplace. So far over sixty employers covering over 150,000 employees have been accredited.

Deputy CEO Tracy Herd, who accepted the award on behalf of the Forum said: 'The charter provides the opportunity for employers to demonstrate genuine commitment to the health and wellbeing of their staff. This requires organisations to look at leadership, culture and communication. We see this award as an integral part of our intention to be the best employer we can be for our staff.'

The Men’s Health Forum need your support

It’s tough for men to ask for help but if you don’t ask when you need it, things generally only get worse. Especially during a major pandemic like Covid-19. So we’re asking.

Men appear more likely to get Covid-19 and far, far more likely to die from it. The Men's Health Forum are working hard pushing for more action on this from government, from health professionals and from all of us. Why are men more affected and what can we do about it? We need the data. We need the research. We need the action. Currently we're the only UK charity doing this - please help us.

Here’s our fund-raising page - please chip in if you can.
