Employee’s wellbeing is addressed through various ways. They have a flexible working policy and consider requests from all employees who need to reduce and rearrange their hours and where possible they accommodate staff requests to work flexibly. They have many part-time workers in the organisation. Families are often included and are invited to attend the annual party which is a nice opportunity for them to share together.
Giving Something Back
Giving Something Back
Response has its own charitable donation section called Response Giving which is run by a group of active volunteers who meet monthly to discuss requests for donations and to arrange vigorous fundraising. It fundraises and relieves suffering by making donations to people with enduring mental health issues that cannot access money through another source that is so immediate. Their service users benefit from their proximity by the annual events organised such as barbeques and dances. They have a sustainability policy and also monitor who takes their waste, what happens to their green waste and also recycle ink cartridges, paper and cardboard.
