Staff Wellness Visits
Staff mental health and wellness is an increasing area of importance. As part of our work, Four Legged Friends has been visiting workplaces to meet staff.
In an article in The Telegraph, it said ‘Animals are a powerful source of social support for humans. When a dog is beside you, you have a sense that they are giving you genuinely unconditional love, and that feels good. A dog doesn’t care if you have done something wrong, if you are grumpy, or if you are having a down day of any kind. A dog loves you anyway, giving you cheerful attention regardless of what else is going on in your life. So it’s no wonder that dogs make humans feel better, improving their social life in a very real and direct way. And it can only be good to have that extra emotional support beside your staff at work.’
