We're here for you when you need us

Health and wellbeing underpin everything we do here at the Devon & Plymouth Chamber of Commerce. We know that sometimes, things can feel a little overwhelming – particularly during the added pressures brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic.

No matter what our work schedule or personal situation might be, it is crucial to create opportunities to rest, not only for our physical health, but also our mental health and wellbeing.

This page features advice and resources for coping with stress and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.


Menopausal women are the fastest-growing workforce demographic. Therefore, it makes sense that forward-thinking organisations recognise the importance and value of introducing menopause policies and guidance, raising awareness of menopause and putting the right support in place.

We teamed up with SW Women in Business CIC to host a special hybrid event at China Fleet Country Club in Saltash which looked at the menopause from a women’s perspective but also from the angle of an employer and the HR processes surrounding the issue.

Our superb guest speakers on the day were: Carolyn Giles, Head of People & Operations at Plymouth Citybus; Jane Sargeant, Healthcare Account Manager at Nuffield Health; Helena White, Head of HR Services at Delt Shared Services Ltd; Nikki Harris, owner of Women’s Hormone Health; and Briony Goldsmith, Chair of the Menopause Network at the University of Plymouth.
