Space Engineering Services highly values the health and wellbeing of all of our colleagues, and in a week when there are so many areas of focus, we have decided to combine all of the worthy initiatives below into one big Health and Wellbeing Week.
World Blood Donor Day – 14th June 2021
World Blood Donor Day serves to raise awareness of the need for safe blood and blood products and to thank voluntary, unpaid blood donors for their life-saving gifts of blood.
This year’s focus is “Give blood and keep the world beating”. The message highlights the essential contribution blood donors make to keeping the world pulsating by saving lives and improving others’ health. It reinforces the global call for more people all over the world to donate blood regularly and contribute to better health.
Our Managing Director, Dale Nouch, is an ardent supporter of this cause and is about to give blood for the 110th time!!
Men’s Health Week – 14th to 21st June
The Men’s Health Forum is a charity that advocates Men’s Health Week and works to improve men’s health services and the health of men. Their website provides a wide range of information on various health conditions which are found to be more prevalent in men.
Men’s Health Week runs from 14 – 21 June and this year’s focus is on “how do we move forward from COVID-19”.
As the Board sponsor for Health and Wellbeing with Space Engineering, our Operations Director, Paul Salmon, will be leading the focus on this topic.
Nutrition and Hydration Week – 14th to 21st June
Nutrition & Hydration is an annual event with a shared objective to highlight, promote and celebrate improvements in the provision of nutrition and hydration locally, nationally and globally.
Its purpose is to bring people together to create energy, focus and fun in order to highlight and educate people on the value of food and drink in maintaining health and wellbeing in health and social care.
Cervical Screening Awareness Week – 14th to 18th June
We’ll be focusing on Cervical Screening Awareness Week and the importance of regular cervical screening for woman’s health.
Cervical cancer is the most common form of cancer in women under 35, with two women in the UK per day dying from the disease. Regular cervical screening appointments can prevent up to 75% of instances of cervical cancer, saving 5000 lives per year.
Despite this, many women are reluctant to have this test done with a quarter of women not responding to their screening invitation.
