Derby wellbeing firm helps give charity staff TLC

The team at local charity Safe and Sound, which spends its time helping children who have suffered abuse or exploitation, are receiving some TLC themselves thanks to Derby wellbeing consultancy Calm In A Box.

After having worked for large corporate organisations during her career in Human Resources, Sarah Markham, Founder of Calm in A Box, wanted to become more meaningfully involved with charity work and charitable organisations. Although running fundraising engagement initiatives and charity affiliations through the companies she’d worked for, Sarah was keen to contribute in a more direct and personal way.

Now, through Calm In A Box, she is working with Safe and Sound. The Safe and Sound team work closely with both children and their families to work towards a place of safety following abuse and exploitation. Over time, this aims to help all that have been impacted to be able to move forward positively and hopefully go on to unlock their full potential in life.

As a result, Safe and Sound CEO, Tracy Harrison, wanted to look for ways to give the team some time and support around their own wellbeing, and Calm In A Box was given the opportunity to run its CALM team programme using real life stories, data and theory in interactive exercises to support teams to connect and build a deeper understanding of themselves and each other.

Tracy Harrison said: “I am so happy the team have had some time out and time to think about themselves.”

Sarah said: “I have loved working with a team who I know do such important work in the community and who are working extremely hard to support people who really need some help and some kindness in a world when they’ve perhaps not had much of that before.

“It’s also been great to work with a group who are so open and engaged with considering how to improve their individual and team approach to wellbeing and their wellbeing practice and who recognise the important link between looking after themselves so they are in the best place to look after others. I’m looking forward to the next session already!”
