A nine-point stress plan has been launched by the Police Federation to help forces better prioritise on officer wellbeing.

This plan was presented to health and safety representatives from the 43 forces in England and Wales, as well as representatives from the Scottish Police Federation, the Police Federation for Northern Ireland, and three of our non-home forces – the British Transport PoliceCivic Nuclear Constabulary and Ministry of Defence Police.

It has been released as a national template to work in conjunction with Oscar Kilo and the Blue Light Wellbeing Framework to help forces improve their focus on officer welfare.

Each of the representatives will now take the template to their respective forces in order to agree a way forward in terms of achieving a strong commitment at force level to better support officer health and wellbeing.
