iNForm your Workplace
Reaching adulthood, leaving education and starting on the employment ladder can lead to a number of obstacles, particularly within the working environment, but it doesn't have to. People spend a huge percentage of each waking hour in work, and so it should be as enjoyable and profitable as possible, for all concerned, including those with Neurofibromatosis. This is why we have set up our new initiative called iNForm so that we can help support as many employers and colleagues as possible to create the best possible environment for people with Neurofibromatosis to work in.
iNForm is a programme of information and on-the-ground support from Nerve Tumours UK. This will help you give the most effective support to employees with Neurofibromatosis Type 1, Type 2 and Schwannomatosis.
Our team of Specialist Nurses/Advisors are able to offer an advisory service for employers, who will most likely never have heard of Neurofibromatosis, and will not be aware of how the condition may affect an individual. They can also host a half-day training session for human resources and other senior managers, especially if it is a much larger company and one, where there may be a number of employees with Neurofibromatosis. Working with both the employer, their HR department, and the employee, will benefit all parties, optimising the work experience and work effort, and ultimately the employee and corporate goals.
If you need any help in this area, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request a Workplace Information Pack, and to be put in contact with a regional community-based Specialist NF Nurse/Advisor, who will be able to help.
