This year, Time to Talk Day is a bit different at Catsurveys. Usually we would have the team gathered together in our office discussing mental health and wellbeing over a cup of tea and some cake from our annual bake sale to raise funds for Mates in Mind. However as we all know, that isn’t possible at the moment. So this year, we are spreading awareness via our virtual channels with our team!
Living Wage Week is the annual celebration of the Living Wage movement. This year Living Wage Week takes place from Monday 9th to Sunday 15th November 2020. The Living Wage campaign is an independent movement of businesses, organisations and people who believe a hard day’s work deserves a fair day’s pay.

Ensuring that health and safety procedures are followed on a construction site is usually the top priority – but there is only so much protection that PPE and knowledge can provide. Not to mention, that protection is only physical. What about ‘mental protection’? Surely, it is only right that mental health and safety is given the same level of importance and investment as other hazards on site.
