Mental Health & Wellbeing



According to a recent study, 1 in 6 people in any given week will experience a common mental health problem, in the UK.

Having already made considerable strides in improving the support we provide to our colleagues we will continue to grow this support over the next few years. We are committed to supporting those with mental health conditions and making Loganair a place where mental health is talked about openly and without judgement, in other words... ensuring our colleagues know "it's okay not to be okay" and that we focus on looking after each other and our customers. 

What we're doing right now

  • We're proud to have 37 fully trained Mental Health First Aiders (MHFAs) accredited by Red Umbrella. Their main role is to raise awareness for mental health, help provide information and materials and be there to offer initial support to their colleagues.
  • The company also have an employee assistance program (Health Assured) ensuring team members have access to confidential, emotional support 24 hours a day. 

Mental Health Awareness Week

The official theme this year was ‘loneliness’. 

During the week, Loganair has been running a number of activities internally to help colleagues reach out to one another: 

  • A Fundraising Bake Sale - with money raised to be donated to our nominated mental health charity.
  • Connect Four - an initiative encouraging four colleagues who have not recently spoken to one another to get together.
  • Internal promotion of our Mental Health First Aider Team and who to talk to when feeling lonely.

Looking ahead...

This is just the beginning of Loganair’s commitment to mental health and well being.

  • We will continue to offer our Mental Health Firstaiders refresher training every 6 months and strive to train 12 more individuals in 2023.
  • We are planning to support a mental health and wellbeing activity every quarter.
  • Our Diversity and Inclusion Forum is focusing on how we can better ensure inclusion, support and fair treatment for colleagues and customers affected by a mental health condition
