Work at home image.jpgThe Staff Mental Health and Wellbeing Hub is looking to improve the cultural sensitivity of coaching, making it more inclusive and appropriate for a wider audience. In order to take our ambition further we are establishing a reference group made up of workers across the region who have some understanding of coaching and who want to use their coaching knowledge and lived experiences to help shape a more culturally sensitive coaching offer. The work so far and ahead is outlined in this paper.

Target audience: some experience of coaching, ideally from a minority ethnic community or committed to work in a culturally sensitive manner

Time commitment: 3-4 meetings per year and some work outside in terms of contributing to programme design, preparing papers/ presentations.

Dates of first two meetings: Tuesday 7th September 1-3.30. Wednesday 6th October 14.00-16:30.

To sign up or to find out more email by 1 September with your name, organisation, role and a brief paragraph about why you want to be involved. Places are limited.
