The Blue Light Wellbeing Framework
The Blue Light Wellbeing Framework is a new sector-specific framework that we believe is the first of its kind in the emergency services. This new Framework contains learning from across the services, academia and Public Health England to provide organisations with a self-assessment tool that sets a new standard for the emergency services.
