 To provide a bit more background to ‘Together, We Will’  which launched on the 17th June, please see this article – https://www.cateringinsight.com/breaking-news-ceda-and-cedabond-unveil-industry-wide-csr-social-enterprise/

A big driver for the focus on Health & Wellbeing is training and education.

We have partnered with Mental Health First Aid England and secured an initial 50 spaces on their half-day, online course ‘Mental Health Aware’.

The Learning Objectives that the course will deliver are:

  • An understanding of what mental health is and how to challenge stigma
  • A basic knowledge of some common mental health issues
  • An introduction to looking after their own mental health and maintaining wellbeing
  • Confidence to offer support to someone in distress or who may be experiencing a mental health issue

This is just a starting point and we will secure further courses according to demand – it is our ambition to have at least 1 person In every organisation in our Industry undertake training.

The course will be delivered on Zoom, with 25 delegates per course and we have negotiated a price of £90 plus VAT per person – if this cost is prohibitive but you would like to take the course then please do contact us.

The times and dates for the first two courses are:

27th July 2021, 09.30-13:30
