The Council has made supporting the improvement of employee health and wellbeing a priority.
We work with AXA to provide a professional and confidential counselling and advice service to all employees.
Mental Health First Aiders
Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an internationally recognised training course, designed to teach people how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill health and provide help on a first aid basis.
Embedding MHFA training within Derby City Council encourages people to talk more freely about mental health, reduce stigma and create a more positive culture.
We have employee networks that offer help, advice and support in a friendly and safe environment.
We have three employee networks that help us promote equality and diversity at the Council:
- Black and Minority Ethnic Employees Support Network
- Disabled Employees Network
- LGBTQ+ and Allies Employee Network
Strategic Directors support the networks, and employees can attend meetings during working hours.
