These cafes form part of the Wellbeing Framework, which aims to increase health and wellbeing opportunities for staff. More information on the Framework can be found here.
Each event has a specific theme, and the schedule for 2022 is as follows:
17 August – Skin Health
21 September – Mental Health Resilience
6 October - Sleep
19 October – Women’s Health and Menopause
3 November – Work-life Balance
16 November – Alcohol Awareness
9 December – Coping with loneliness
All of the events will take place from 2pm-4pm at the Village Bar on the East Midlands campus. They are intended to be a safe but informal space, so colleagues are reminded that they should not feel obliged to stay for the full duration.
Refreshments will be available, so come and grab a cuppa and take advantage of some time away from your normal workspace and the daily stresses of life.

Skin Health - Wednesday 17 August
The recent heatwave we have experienced serves us with a reminder about how important it is to look after our skin and protect it from ultraviolet light. This session will provide attendees with information about skin health, what to look out for and top tips on how best to protect your skin. There will also be an informal session held for those who have any specific concerns about their skin health that they’d like to raise.
Upcoming Remploy session
Remploy is an external support service that works in partnership with the University to offer support to those who feel their mental health is impacting their work. They offer virtual and confidential one-to-one support appointments for up to 9 months with the aim of providing help with managing both your job and your wellbeing. From designing wellbeing plans to suggesting coping strategies, the service is suitable for those experiencing any sort of difficulties juggling their mental health and work.
