The Greater Manchester Wellbeing Toolkit for our health and care workforce is an interactive online toolkit to help support you to be your best.
The last twelve months have been really challenging for the people keeping our health and care services running, and it is more important than ever that we all prioritise good wellbeing in everything we do.
This toolkit has been developed by NHS Greater Manchester Integrated Care for the benefit of our health and care workforce, including colleagues in the NHS and social care, as well as those in the voluntary sector, those delivering health and care services in the private sector and our unwaged workforce too. It is designed with this workforce in mind; however, it is hoped that the toolkit can support anyone navigating the challenges of working during the pandemic.
The toolkit provides advice on keeping well physically, practically and psychologically, as well as top tips on how you can support those around you and seek help for yourself or someone you know when it’s needed.

Whether you work on site or work from home, or a mixture of the two, there are guides on introducing a ‘Buddy Network’ in your team, a debriefing guide to help you make the transition from work to home at the end of the day, as well as tips for improving your sleep and reducing stress.
The toolkit is divided into three sections:
- Looking after yourself – practical tools and tips on how to build our physical and mental resilience.
- Supporting others – guides and tools to help you support others, either as a a manager or on a peer to peer basis.
- Responding to need – information on where to seek help when you need it – both online and more personal depending on what works best for you
