The Trust's Child Protection team provides 'Breaking free - responding to domestic abuse' training, which focuses mainly on patients and service users but also includes information on how to recognise and support colleagues who may be victims of domestic violence. Our Employee Assistance Programme can provide advice, support and guidance and is free and confidential. We have a 'Dignity & Respect at Work' policy in place and wehave recently reviewed and strengthened our 'Zero tolerance' policy. Our staff survey action plan continues to address bullying & harassment at work and we have recently trained a number of mediators and Dignity at Work Advisors to help staff find informal resolutions to bullying and harassment in the workplace.
