In Scotland we have partnered NHS Healthy Working Lives (HWL) to deliver one hour Arthritis awareness sessions to businesses. The aim is to improve workers’ knowledge and understanding of a range of health issues that can affect people in the workplace.
In Westminster we have taken part in a national campaign to oppose the “Lobbying Bill”, which will restrict charities and campaign groups from doing policy and campaigning work. So far, the campaign has had limited success in curtailing some of the Bill’s worst effects. Sadly, the final version will still have a chilling effect on charities’ abilities to campaign on issues within 7 months of a general election.
