The University is committed to providing an environment that supports the wellbeing of both staff and students. See Warwick's commitment to Wellbeing of its community.
Warwick has held the Workplace Wellbeing Charter Mark since May 2017 and is now required to renew the accreditation. Rather than renew against the national Charter Mark, the University is opting to work on a newly developed Charter, Thrive at Work, which is a pioneering programme being launched across the West Midlands by Thrive, the West Midland Combined Authority’s (WMCA) Mental Health Commission.
Work is being overseen by a Wellbeing Working Group, chaired by Hannah Friend, Director of Wellbeing Support Services and Safeguarding, and progress will be reported via this webpage and InSite.
