I’m interested to know how your National Society supports staff and volunteers. I want to inspire my National Society by telling them what others offer. My National Society provides 4 things: 1-4 sessions per year with a counsellor, mandatory de-briefing if you are involved in a critical incident, access to Headspace (which I think all NS received after COVID) and occasional (once a year) stress reduction seminars in one language only. I’m not looking for comparison, just inspiration based on what your National Society does. Thanks!
