About the Leg-Up Project
The Leg-Up Project provides staff that are experiencing financial hardship with access a scheme which provides them with vouchers redeemable at Gateshead Health catering facilities.
Colleagues can collect vouchers from our Chaplaincy team, each of which can be redeemed for meals, drinks or items up to the value of £6.00 from our on-site catering facilities. Eligible facilities for redemption of vouchers include The Hub, The Park Deli, Tranwell Cafe, Peter Smith Surgery Centre and The Junction in Outpatients.
Vouchers are designed to enable discreet redemption, and as a result are designed the exact same as any other QE Facilities catering voucher. It is hoped that their provision will help to keep our colleagues at their best while at work, and ensure no one misses out on the benefits of a break and a meal.
It goes without saying that nobody should go without access to food and drink. We know the impact a good meal can have on your wellbeing, providing you with the nutrition to stay physically and mentally well, as well as a valuable social opportunity in the middle of what can often be stressful shifts.
If you feel the Leg Up project could be beneficial to you in helping you, please do not hesitate to take advantage of it. Stocks are limited, but should be used. Fore more on how to access the support, please see below.
