Ayrshire Housing now has a silver Healthy Working Lives award to add to its existing bronze. The awards support employers and employees to develop health promotion and safety themes in the workplace. They are sponsored by NHS Scotland.
Ayrshire Housing’s Caroline Donald and Sharon Ritchie were delighted to receive their “silver” at this year’s awards ceremony. It was presented by Chris Moon who has motivated many as he conquered the disabling injuries he suffered clearing mines in Mozambique.
Caroline said “it’s a real honour to receive the award from such an inspirational figure. We intend now to work towards the gold award and hopefully also a Mental Health and Well-being Commendation”.
Everyone at Ayrshire Housing is committed to achieving the demanding gold award. An early action has been to develop further the office’s very own herb garden. This provides ingredients for our healthy working lunches or just to take home.
