Wellbeing- Dignity at Work

by Michael Ford last modified 28 Jul, 2021 05:41 PM

Work-life balance; care and support; reflective practice; learning and growing.


As the church, visible in the Diocese of Salisbury, we affirm that our wellbeing is essential to our ministry and mission as the people of God. It is an integral part of that formation which enables us to grow into the full stature of Christ and be his vibrant presence in the world.

It is through loving and caring for one another and ourselves that we witness to our love of God. It is with these deeply held beliefs that we offer a range of wellbeing resources, calling one another into renewed commitment to the life-long process of growing in wholeness of ministry.

Our Diocesan view of wellbeing is one of on-going formation, expressed through the following diverse, far reaching and interdependent areas: my role (professional development); my relationships (interacting with others); and myself (self awareness and care). Thus, we:

  • Model work life balance and honour the integrity of the person in all areas of our common life
  • Make provision for the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual needs of our ministers
  • Develop a culture of care and support amongst colleagues, with particular emphasis on the life of Chapters
  • Provide access to appropriate forms of confidential care and help for those who need them
  • Provide the opportunity for sharing and exploring work and personal issues in the context of reflective practice groups
  • Offer, through the CMD programme, events and opportunities which are nurturing and restorative as well as educational and developmental

Dignity at Work

The Diocese aims to provide a supportive environment in which the rights of individuals are respected and each person is treated with dignity and courtesy at all times. Abuse, harassment and bullying will, therefore, not be tolerated, complaints will be taken seriously and complaints will be thoroughly investigated.
