Executive summary

The London Healthy Workplace Charter (LHWC) is a framework that enables employers to self-assess the work environment and the activities they have in place to protect and promote the physical and mental wellbeing of their staff. The Charter is a delivery programme for the Mayor’s Health Inequalities Strategy and supports the London Health Board priority on mental health. The health team is seeking approval to allocate £35,000 to this programme to:

  • Commission external delivery partner support to accredit employers.
  • Hold an awards ceremony to promote the programme and recognise success against the standards.
  • Revise current programme material to support further employer engagement.

The programme is delivered in partnership with Public Health England and twenty-one London boroughs.
