Upbeat! 2019

Building on the success of the UpBeat! London conference in March 2018, the Police Dependants Trust and the National Chiefs Police Council are again collaborating to produce UpBeat! Leeds in March 2019.

The conference will bring together subject matter experts in occupational health, trauma resilience, and welfare provision, and practitioners to share learning, thinking and experience on improving police wellbeing.

The agenda will also include presentations on the challenges of supporting well being in major incidents such as Salisbury and thought-provoking initiatives happening at a local level.  We will provide an update on the National police wellbeing programme where delegates will be involved in shaping this ongoing and vitally important work.

We look forward to exchanging ideas, learning about what’s happening in forces, and helping each other find solutions to the complex challenges in police wellbeing.

Based on feedback from 2018, Upbeat! Leeds will be a 24-hour lunchtime to lunchtime conference to allow all those attending more time to learn, network and share ideas.

We are acutely aware of the pressures on police budgets and as a result, places at the conference are heavily subsidised with an early booking rate (before 15/10/18) of £190 towards the costs of the conference networking dinner, bed & breakfast, lunch on both days and refreshments.

We look forward to welcoming you to Upbeat! Leeds 2019,

Upbeat! 2018 London

March 2018 saw the Police Dependants’ Trust host Upbeat! London,  the 2nd annual conference on police wellbeing in partnership with the National Police Chiefs Council and Oscar Kilo.

Following on from the successful 2017 conference on post-traumatic stress in frontline policing, this year was all about raising the game in police wellbeing. As well as hearing first-hand accounts of the impact of modern policing on its people, delegates heard about work being done Nationally to develop a trauma resilience programme by the Trust, approaches to trauma risk management from the College of Policing, and the new National wellbeing strategy from the National Police Chief’s Council.

As part of the output for the conference, the 200+ delegates attending the conference put forward the issues they would like to see prioritised by the service going forward, and Mr. Rhodes QPM, wellbeing lead for the NPCC will be responding to them in due course.
