Charity of the Month – Comic Relief

Happy Easter everyone! I hope you are all enjoying the long Easter weekend wherever you are. The sun is shining here. We have been enjoying the sunshine here for the last few days now. I hope the sunny days stay for a bit longer. The charity of the month this April is Comic Relief. A few weeks ago, Comic Relief celebrated Red Nose Day and it was great to see the different ways individuals and organisations got involved. It is always important to support charities who intern support others. This year has been tough for many people in different ways and I am always eager to get involved with charities and do my bit.

Comic Relief’s Mission 

To drive positive change through the power of entertainment

How the donation is allocated

The money received from donations is allocated as grants to various charities. These charities help support those who are living tough lives in the UK and all around the world.

I think Comic Relief is doing an amazing job for those struggling to make ends meet. It is amazing to see how they support thousands of charities with grants.

Getting involved

You can get involved with Comic Relief through fundraising. Catch up on all the relevant information here. Also, you can also donate to Comic Relief. Your donations go a long way in shaping the lives of families all over the world. For example, £30 could support a child in Uganda to access early years education for a whole year, £50 could pay to get 200 meals to vulnerable children and their families in the UK. You can donate here. You can also support Comic Relief by shopping on their online store. They have cute noses, bottles, shirts, accessories and more on sale.

Always know there’s help

The workplace environment may not be a place you feel comfortable talking to people, especially if you do not know them as well as your friends and family. But, always know that there is someone you can talk to. For example, if you have had an incident then you can talk to your boss, a colleague, or a federal criminal defense lawyer. If you were the victim of the incident, it needs reporting. If you were involved, the latter option may be the best choice.

Be communicative

In workplaces where there is a fear-based regime, there are secrets. Parenting provides a great metaphor; it is easy to mistakenly think that a spanking will elicit a behavioral change. While it might appear to work in the short term, the long-term ramifications are far too costly. The same goes for the workplace. When everyone is walking on eggshells, employee concerns are buried deep under the surface. This increases the risk of a sudden argument or disagreement. 

Regular cleaning

Regular cleaning of any workspace is key to keep hazards at a minimum. For instance, it is easy to suffer a slip accident in any workplace, from a warehouse to an office if there is something on the floor. Daily cleaning services will prevent or reduce the risk of incidents like this. 

Be aware of the risks

Regardless of where you work, you need to understand the potential risks and issues that you might encounter. If your workplace has particular hazards or dangers, then you need to make your staff and co-workers fully aware of what they are and how to avoid those problems. Once you’ve made everyone aware of the hazards, you can work more safely knowing that you and your staff understand the risks in your workplace. They don’t have to be obvious and immediate dangers either like power tools, it could be something specific such as a loose step on the stairs or a faulty power outlet. Make sure these are disabled if possible, or that warning signs are placed around them.

Understand the equipment

If you work in a hazardous workplace, such as a spray painting factory or a chemical plant, then make sure you know how to properly use your safety equipment and how to maintain it. Even if you know how to put the gear on, you might not fully understand how to use it when a situation occurs. Never slack with the process of putting on and maintaining your gear because it’s there for a reason. It’ll save your life and protect you from medical conditions and problems should you encounter them.
