Baby Loss Awareness – Aching Arms Workplace Training – 6th March 2024
In the UK, sadly, 1 in 4 pregnancy end in loss, with around 3,000 babies stillborn each year and thousands more parents experiencing early and late miscarriages, ectopic pregnancy, termination for medical reasons and neonatal death.
The recently published Independent Pregnancy Loss Review states in Recommendation 68 that ‘All organisations should update their Human Resources (HR) policies and practices to adequately support staff who experience pre-24- week baby loss.
Therefore, Provide Community are collaborating with Aching Arms, a national pregnancy and baby loss charity, based in Essex, to create training opportunities that raise awareness of the impact of this type of loss and help you support bereaved employees after loss.
We know there are many employers and managers who are not sure what to do, how to help and more often than not, when support is not in place, employees underperform for an extended period or resign. All of which puts added pressure on the business. This is often a reactive rather than a proactive topic which is why we are teaming up with Aching Arms to give you the tools needed to feel equipped to support your colleagues in these difficult times. Our first Workplace Bereavement Training session will be held on 6th March 2024. You can book your place via Smoothbook today!
