Thank you to Sandwell Metropolitan Borough Council who signed the charter on 15th June 2016 providing protection for their 10,227 employees.

Sandwell Council Leader, Cllr Steve Eling, said:
“We recognise that employees with terminal illnesses require support and understanding, and not the additional stress and worry about possibly losing their job. We will set out to support terminally-ill employees following their diagnosis and to recognise that safe and reasonable work can maintain dignity and offer a valuable distraction. Sandwell Council has a long history of supporting employees diagnosed with terminal illness, but has never previously backed-up this stance by having a formal council rule on this matter.”
