Thank you to Northumbria Police who signed the charter on 28th November 2019 providing protection for their 5,092 employees.
Northumbria Police and Crime Commissioner, Kim McGuinness, said:
“Your job should be the last thing on your mind when you’re given a terminal diagnosis. You need dignity, you need money – you need a responsible employer who will step up and help you through the difficulties that lie ahead. Our officers and staff help so many people in their times of need – it’s only right that our organisations do the same. This commitment is about offering peace of mind and the right to choose a course of action that’s right for you and your family. Every person battling terminal conditions should be able to choose how to spend their final months. I hope to see as many companies and organisations as possible sign up to the Dying to Work campaign to show employees that they are valued and will be given the support they rightly deserve.”
