Case study – BAME health and wellbeing practitioner
The pandemic has disproportionately impacted on people from black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) backgrounds. South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust recognised that BAME staff may therefore need additional or more specific support during this time. As part of NHS Charities Together funding, the Trust recruited Charlene Sibanda into a new role as a wellbeing practitioner for the BAME workforce.
In her role, Charlene will work to ensure that all BAME staff across the Trust feel engaged, equal and well supported. She will complete health checks with staff, work on signposting directories, hold focus groups and create opportunities for development. Charlene will be encouraging change for staff that want to see improvements both in their work and personal life.
