Heroes helping heroes

Thank you for supporting the wellbeing of our Flinders Heroes.

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit you generously offered your support to the amazing healthcare workers and researchers… the Flinders Heroes!

And in doing so, you became our hero!

Thanks to you, staff working in a variety of areas shared in 23 Wellbeing Wallet grants – a small boost to help recharge and focus on their own wellbeing in a way they chose.

These wellbeing activities included:

  • Laughter yoga classes for 400 staff. 
  • A coffee machine to encourage staff to take a break and get through their day.
  • ‘Still Hour’ workshops for the Intensive Care Unit and midwifery staff to provide practical ways to help staff prevent burnout and fatigue, and to teach them reflection and relaxation. 
  • Wellbeing gardens at Flinders Medical Centre and Noarlunga Hospital to provide staff with a therapeutic place to sit, unwind and connect with one another.

Thank you for giving thanks to our Flinders Heroes for all that they do for you and your loved ones.
