Happiness awards We are delighted to have been chosen as this year’s beneficiary of the National Happiness Awards run by our supporters, Laughology.

They recognise excellence in workplace wellbeing and positive mental health initiatives. Nominations are now invited from the business, charity, education and public sectors for the categories including; Happiest Workplace, Happiest Employee and Happiest Team, Happiest Primary School, Happiest Secondary School, and Haven House is keen to see nominations from both our corporate partners and supporters in these sectors. We work with wide range of partners who do brilliant fundraising and volunteering which improves the wellbeing and happiness of our children and families. We’re so pleased to be involved in the National Happiness Awards and are looking forward to a great awards night. Natalie Chevin, Head of CorporateThe influential awards have developed a reputation as the nation’s brightest and boldest award scheme and consistently attract hundreds of nominations from some of the country’s most forward-thinking organisations. Former winners include Bupa, Virgin Active and Burges Salmon. Organisations are increasingly recognising the value of creating happy workplaces where employees are supported and developed. Research proves that happy employees are healthier, more engaged and more productive. National Happiness Awards founder Stephanie Davies said: “Happiness is a vital element of any people-focused organisation and in many ways, it is more important than financial benefits because it is sustainable, it improves mental health and wellbeing and it promotes long-term growth and development.” The business awards Gold sponsor is Simply Better Events and the awards will raise money for our hospice through an auction and raffle. Winners will be announced at a gala ceremony in November. To submit a nomination, visit Laughology.
