The New Zealand Firefighters Welfare Society would like to highlight the recent announcement regarding a significant Movember grant awarded to a group of NZ firefighters to develop and evaluate a program to improve firefighter wellbeing. The Whanaungatanga Program, which will initially be piloted in Auckland and Whangarei, will provide a process for identifying organisational factors that contribute to distress and distrust and also provide a process for the development of interventions aimed at eliminating or minimising these factors. You can find out more about the program here.
2021 Firefighters Welfare Society Survey
In September this year we conducted the biggest survey in our history. We were keen to hear the good, the bad and the ugly of what you think of the NZFFWS and that's exactly what we heard. Huge thanks to the 1,147 people who took part.
Read the results here including the good, the bad and the ugly and see the improvements we're already working on.
