Managing Cancer and Dementia* in Your Workplace

Timed to coincide with Macmillan coffee morning (the world’s biggest coffee morning) Friday 29th September 2017 Schools’ Personnel Service in partnership with Kent CIPD Branch will be hosting an event for schools and businesses across Kent focusing on managing cancer and dementia in the workplace.

With speakers from Macmillan and Dementia Friends* the morning offers….

  • An introduction to Macmillan and the variety of services it offers for those affected by cancer.
  • A look at the impact of cancer on work and the issues faced in the workplace.
  • A review of the legal position and obligations towards employees living with cancer and carers, as well as what support is available to help you meet some of those obligations.
  • Advice about the different Macmillan resources that are available to help you to support employees affected by cancer.
  • Advice in talking about cancer, something people often find difficult to discuss.

CIPD Kent Branch

We are the Kent branch of CIPD - the professional body for HR and people development. The not-for-profit organisation champions better work and working lives and has been setting the benchmark for excellence in people and organisation development for more than 100 years.


We have a wide range of organisations and CIPD membership and we respond to this with a full selection of CPD and networking opportunities.


Due to the geographical spread of the county we have 3 area groups – Mid Kent, West Kent and East Kent. Between them they regularly hold sessions with guest speakers on subjects requested by the members. Most events are supported by local companies who host the events and provide an opportunity to meet other HR practitioners.


We also appreciate the specialisms within HR and have Special Interest Groups that meet regularly and occasionally have speakers. These groups include Health and Social Care and Senior Practitioners. Similarly we have smaller bespoke groups, Self Managed Learning Groups that operate throughout the county. These include the Coaching Groups in East Kent and West Kent. We  encourage the creation of new groups so if there is not an area covered, why not set one up?


Join our LinkedIn group, follow us on Twitter, like our Facebook page, or sign up to our emails for the latest news and events information.


Come along to an event and meet our friendly and welcoming committee members and the wonderful HR community of Kent!
