Wellbeing Works

1st February 2022 - 31st March 2023

What was Wellbeing Works?

Wellbeing Works was an exciting opportunity for Devon based businesses, employees and individuals to benefit from the tools, techniques and inspiration needed to prioritise and develop wellbeing and resilience during the pandemic recovery period.

Why Wellbeing and Resilience?

Wellbeing and resilience are at the heart of Devon’s ability to survive, recover and thrive. If we look after ourselves and our teams we can all reap the personal and professional benefits.

"Together, by prioritising wellbeing, we can thrive."
