What is the Being Well Together Programme?
Being Well Together is the new integrated solution for all your health, safety and wellbeing needs. Becoming a supporter provides you with the tools to effectively implement a health, safety, and wellbeing strategy in a joined-up, holistic way.
Why become a Supporter?
No matter what size your organisation is, the sector or location, poor employee health and wellbeing directly results in poor organisational wellbeing. That means working days lost, decreases in productivity and effectiveness of employees, increased presenteeism and increased risk of accident or injury. It can also significantly impact on workplace culture, employee turnover and brand. Being Well Together, developed with support from award winning mental health specialists Mates in Mind, is here to help you navigate the steps you need to take, to achieve the best outcome for your organisation and your people.
The first truly joined up approach
Our experience shows that starting your wellbeing journey with a plethora of wellbeing benefits and interventions alone is unlikely to be enough, or effective, no matter what size your investment. Being Well Together is different, being the first truly joined up approach to health, safety and wellbeing. It enables Supporters to tackle wellbeing by getting to the root cause of illness in the workplace. With organisations embedding a ‘new normal’, we know that a coordinated, sustained, and integrated set of interventions, delivered as part of a holistic organisation-wide programme is the most effective in delivering short and long-term benefits to your organisation.
Tailored and flexible solutions
Our Being Well Together programme will enable you to assess your health, safety and wellbeing requirements. You can understand any gaps and explore the most effective measures for you, helping you build a plan.
Our expertise will support you every step of the way as we look to both support you in creating your ideal approach, whilst recognising any existing provision. Our dedicated Support Manager will help you interpret findings, access research, resources and campaign materials, as well as signposting to reputable sources and understanding best practice. This will save you time, provide assurance and above all enable you to get the most effective results from your investment.

“Shawcity has been a member of The British Safety Council for many years. When the Being Well Together Programme launched, we were keen to get involved from the beginning. Even as an SME, we already had a respectable amount of Health & Wellbeing materials available for our team. But we could see that Being Well Together would offer us baseline data in terms of our current performance, and a comprehensive structure to help prioritise our future actions. The Being Well Together team have been very supportive and we have taken out an initial three-year subscription to demonstrate a real commitment to our team by making sure we understand our business and support everyone working within it accordingly”
