Information for Employers

“POSITIVE MENTAL HEALTH AND WELLBEING IN THE WORKPLACE DEMONSTRATES TO POTENTIAL AND CURRENT EMPLOYEES YOU VALUE THEM – BY VALUING WHAT THEY VALUE.”

The Silkworth Charity Group partners with the workplace to promote wellness, and the combat of the “always-on” mentality of contemporary life. The presence of a chemically dependent employee can have an extremely damaging affect in the workplace, on the organisation, on colleagues and clients as well as the business community. Despite former myths and beliefs, dependency whether it be to alcohol, drugs, medication or any other is an illness. It affects the individual both physically and psychologically and therefore should be treated as a health issue.

We provide tailored programmes for employers around addiction in the workplace. These programmes cover addiction within society today, stigmas, signs to look out for as well as specific information for managers. We also help employers with their Alcohol and Drug Policies in order that they are fit for purpose and in line with best practice.
