To support managers in their role, we have created these toolkits that cover a wide range of topics, including recruitment and health and wellbeing.  Our toolkits are packed full of information, tips, and offer practical support to help you in your role as a manager. 




Resource Description
  Ambulance workforce 
 Head First This resource is organised into themed sections to support mental wellness, resilience and recovery. Whether you’re looking for self care, to find out how you can support a colleague or wish to find out more for your organisation, the head first tool is a great place to start.  Throughout this resource when we refer to mental health we’re talking about your overall mental wellbeing, so how you think, feel and behave. 
  Health and wellbeing
