Our Better You, Better Life Initiative
Meet Alfie. Alfie reports to Mel, our Group Communications Director, four days a week and they have a recurring ‘walking’ meeting. Alfie benefits because his owner can’t get out much anymore. Mel benefits as she can’t have her own dog where she lives.
Through our Better You, Better Life programme. we aim to share positive actions we can all take to improve our wellbeing and mental health.
