TSA launches new Wellbeing Hub for its members
As part of its commitment to helping the laundry industry to create a supportive and inclusive working environment for its staff, the Textile Services Association has launched a Wellbeing Hub for its members. The Hub provides resources to help laundry businesses support their employees with any mental health challenges they may face. This includes bitesize video guides aimed at promoting wellbeing in the workplace.
The Wellbeing Hub is the latest addition to the TSA’s portfolio of training and support resources tailored to the needs of the laundry industry. The bitesize videos examine issues surrounding wellbeing in the workplace. The Hub also provides access to materials from the TSA’s mental health support drive, which includes training courses and webinars. These are also suitable for sharing with staff.
The videos were created in partnership with Via Vita Health, which helps organisations to meet occupational health targets. Director Caroline Sidell announced the Hub at the Autumn Conference, giving a presentation on mental health and trends for 2024.
The Hub builds on the work of the mental health support programme the TSA launched in 2022. This includes courses aimed at increasing mental health awareness for line managers, as well as a mental health first aider course. These courses have been very successful, with over 80 people having attended them so far. The courses are designed to give attendees the knowledge they need to feel confident about advocating for mental health issues, as well as how to spot signs of mental ill health and skills to support positive wellbeing.
“The TSA has been working on ways for its members to help make the laundry industry an even more supportive working environment,” says Emma Andersson, director of finance and membership for the TSA. “Increasing support and awareness of mental health issues is crucial to this, and the Wellbeing Hub puts a lot of really useful information together in one place, designed to support the most important part of the industry – the people in it.”
The Wellbeing Hub can be accessed by TSA members by logging in to the member’s area at tsa-uk.org and going to the Support Services section.
