Wednesday 7 April 2021 Parkwood Leisure has teamed up with Able Futures, a confidential, self-referral support service for workers who are experiencing poor mental wellbeing at work.

After the UK was forced into a third nationwide lockdown as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, many Parkwood Leisure employees have either been furloughed or have worked from home. 

As a result of these necessary measures, the company has carefully considered the mental wellbeing of its employees and partnered with Able Futures to help tackle issues amongst the workforce such as anxiety, depression, stress, sleep disruption, financial concerns or relationship problems. 

Human Resources Director Sue McGrath has said of the partnership: “Our employee welfare has always been a top priority of ours however, these challenging circumstances have placed ever more importance on supporting them. Able Futures provides an outstanding service to workers who are suffering with their mental health. Their initiative is fully funded by the Department for Work and Pensions and we are delighted to have their support.”

Fran Stanton, Operations Manager at Able Futures commented: “We are pleased that Parkwood Leisure have chosen to work with us and are taking responsibility for what is a worldwide matter. We offer an excellent service and aim to help any employee that does choose to use us towards having more good days”.
