The FLBA seeks to encourage and promote initiatives and practices, which will aim to maintain and improve the health and wellbeing of all staff, pupils and barristers.
Wellbeing is defined as
“being as physically fit as you can be, enjoying life and work, being connected to positive others and retaining an ability both to keep perspective about, and ability to recover from, difficult times.”
The FLBA recognises that the wellbeing of members of the FLBA and staff is paramount and that this impacts on their mental, as well as their physical, health. FLBA also appreciates that healthy and well-motivated members of FLBA and staff can have a positive impact on the productivity and effectiveness of the FLBA.
