The month of Ramadan will soon be upon us. Ramadan is a time for reflection, contemplation and celebration for many.
As the Islamic calendar is based around the lunar cycle, the Holy month of Ramadan rotates by approximately ten days each year. This year, Ramadan is expected to begin on the evening of Sunday 5th May 2019, depending on the sighting of the moon.
Take a look at the attached employer’s guide at https://discover-islam.co.uk/training/resources/ to find out more about Ramadan and what we should know about it as employers or colleagues.
Well done to the team 🏆 PCP have won an ambassador status with the Better Health at Work Awards which recognises the efforts of employers in the North East and Cumbria in addressing health issues within the workplace!
As part of a suite of toolkits aimed at employers, PHE has worked with Business in the Community (BITC) to produce a toolkit on domestic abuse. In the UK, nearly two million people experienced domestic abuse in the last year alone. At least one in four women and one in six men suffer domestic abuse at some point. With one third of a working adult’s life spent in work, employers are in a unique position to create a supportive workplace culture that encourages the identification of health and wellbeing needs and in turn support those affected by domestic abuse in their workforce. This toolkit give practical advice and guidance for business of all sizes on just how to do this.
This week 18th – 24th June is Cystic Fibrosis week, a weeklong national campaign to promote the awareness of Cystic Fibrosis.
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a genetic condition affecting more than 10,400 people in the UK. You are born with CF and cannot catch it later in life, but one in 25 of us carries the faulty gene that causes it, usually without knowing. The gene affected by CF controls the movement of salt and water in and out of cells. People with cystic fibrosis experience a build-up of thick sticky mucus in the lungs, digestive system and other organs, causing a wide range of challenging symptoms affecting the entire body.

People with cystic fibrosis often have to undergo a rigorous daily regime of treatments to stay healthy. This can include taking inhaled and injected drugs to clear mucus and fight infections, taking dozens of enzyme pills to digest food and having physiotherapy morning and night. People with cystic fibrosis may also need a transplant. Lung transplants are the most common type for people with cystic fibrosis, as usually these are the organs most affected by cystic fibrosis. However, some people will have problems with their liver, kidneys or pancreas, and may need these organs transplanted.
The (work) week ends with a Wear Yellow Day on Friday 22nd and the Trust is asking people take a #CFYelfie and post to show your support.
It would be great if people could get involved and don your sunniest yellow outfits to raise awareness and vital funds to support people with Cystic Fibrosis.
