Wellbeing MOTs for workplaces

A man in an officeHelping staff and colleagues to adopt healthier lifestyles can transform a workplace into a healthier, more productive and happier place to work. 

Our Wellbeing Advisors offer free workplace visits to Mid Sussex businesses, where they provide staff with impartial health and wellbeing advice. Employees are each given 30 minute appointments to discuss their health and current lifestyle, as well as the option to use Tanita body composition scales, which give a snapshot of several key indicators of optimal health including BMI, weight and body fat. Our Wellbeing Advisors are then able to provide personalised advice, recommending small, realistic and achievable changes to help improve their wellbeing and prevent future ill health. 

Follow up support is offered to everyone who would like it and each organisation is provided with an anonymised report that includes recommendations to benefit the workforce and directs people to relevant workplace health and wellbeing schemes.

To find out more, or book a Wellbeing MOT visit for your workplace, please email the Mid Sussex Wellbeing Team at or call 01444 477191

Government funding of up to £1.8million has been awarded to the West Sussex Chargepoint Network, which is providing electric vehicle (EV) chargepoints for residents in areas which have no off-street parking.

The award will part-fund up to 450 on-street chargepoints and 100 in public car parks. The remaining installation costs will be covered by EV chargepoint company Connected Kerb, one of the UK’s leading providers of EV charging infrastructure solutions.

The new wave of installations will provide a significant boost to the growing West Sussex Chargepoint Network, which is supported by West Sussex County Council and all the districts and borough councils in the county.

This extra funding award by the Department for Transport is excellent news and will further boost what is already the UK’s largest rollout of electric vehicle chargepoints by a local authority. 

Proposed locations from the initial phase of the on-street chargepoint rollout can be viewed on the Connected Kerb website.

The project is fully funded by Connected Kerb, meaning zero cost to the councils.
