Positive Health + Environment Week (PHEW)
Our fifth Positive Health and Environment Week (PHEW) took place between Monday 1st July and Friday 12th July 2013. This annual event aims to encourage, support and develop the health and wellbeing of Cardiff University’s employees, through a wide range of enjoyable and informative activities.
These activities included fitness classes, sports tournaments, health checks, adventure and craft activities, workshops and talks, tours of some of Cardiff's fascinating sites and exhibitions, music and dance, complementary therapies and more. They took place at different locations and at different times of the day, evening and weekend to enable as many people as possible to participate. All were free of charge to members of staff.
The PHEW 2013 brochure below will give you an idea of the huge range of activity that was on offer over the fortnight. Also take a look at the Photo Gallery link on the right of this page to see the fun that was had at just a few of the events.
Each year PHEW is developed and improved as a direct result of your comments and suggestions, so whether or not you were able to participate in PHEW 2013, we'd love to hear your views. This questionnaire should take you no more than 10 minutes to complete. It will be open until 16th August 2013.

Why is PHEW important?
Ensuring that the health and well being of staff is supported is extremely important if we are to ensure that we have a happy, healthy and productive workforce. Since the first Positive Health and Environment Week in 2009, it has become a popular annual event in the University calendar. It is clear from the feedback we receive after each event that PHEW is something which staff have found enjoyable and valuable, enhancing their experience of working for the University.
