Stress awareness month
April is Stress Awareness Month, a campaign that has taken place since 1992. This month long campaign is aimed at increasing the public’s knowledge about the causes of and cures for stress.
Millions of people around the UK experience high levels of stress, which is damaging our health. However, not many people are aware that stress is one of the great public health challenges of our time. Despite this, stress isn’t being taken as seriously as physical health concerns.
Stress is a significant factor in mental health problems including anxiety and depression. It is also linked to physical health problems like heart disease, individually we need to understand what is causing us personal stress and learn what steps we can take to reduce it for ourselves and those around us.

Getting serious about the environment we live in.
To become more ‘environmentally friendly’, Host is launching the #HostEnvironmentalPledge campaign to encourage responsible behaviour and drive sustainability across our sites throughout the UK and Ireland.
It’s a simple campaign! If we can reduce our overall utilities (electric, water and gas) consumption by 1% then we will donate £10,000, 2% reduction means £20,000, 3% is £30,000 and so on, to 3 charities; BulliesOut, Planet Patrol and World Land Trust.Show me all news
