As 2022 draws to a close, we thought it would be nice to look back at the work we have done over the year to support police wellbeing.
As the National Police Wellbeing Service develops and grows, we are continually introducing new bespoke intervention programmes, training packages, online learning, toolkits and campaigns.
Sitting with the College of Policing we work closely with the Home Office, the National Police Chief’s Council, unions and forces across the country to ensure all our work meets the unique needs of police forces, officers and staff.
By carrying out academic studies and research in key areas, and from the results of our national wellbeing survey we design and develop the right interventions and support to fit the requirements of people working in UK policing.
Here are some of our 2022 launches and highlights that we are most proud of:
- Nutrition for wellbeing programme
- Suicide postvention toolkit for policing
- ‘Purpose’ film and mental health awareness package
- Occupational health practitioner network
- Police Covenant delivery and development
- Operation Hampshire app roll out
- Covid-19 rehabilitation programme
- Operation Hampshire: ‘Together against assaults’ campaign
- Better sleep webinars and sleep improvement course
- Sleep, alertness and fatigue in emergency responders programme (SAFER)
- Training over 300 individuals in peer support
- Almost 22,000 people visiting our wellbeing vans
- Inviting over 6,600 individuals for psychological risk assessments
- 160 OK9 wellbeing dogs in forces across the country.

We would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy Christmas and we look forward to working with you in 2023. There’s so much currently being developed, including support for families and leavers, and we can’t wait to share it all with you.
