Trauma informed workplaces

Building support mechanisms into daily work routines is a fundamental part of being a trauma-informed organisation.

‚ÄčTraumatic events and experiences can happen to anyone at any time. These might include:

  • domestic abuse
  • sexual abuse
  • bullying
  • traumatic bereavement
  • life threatening illnesses

This psychological trauma can have a range of long-term consequences, including a higher risk of poor mental and physical health outcomes.

National Trauma Training Programme

The Scottish Government funds a National Trauma Training Programme (NTTP), led by NHS Education for Scotland. The Programme includes freely available, evidence-based trauma training resources to help workforces across all sectors ensure that the needs of people affected by trauma are understood and responded to in a way which supports recovery and avoids any further harm. The NTTP also includes resources on supporting workforce wellbeing, which is central to facilitating trauma-informed workplaces.
