    The police force that covers Milton Keynes has become the 1st in the UK to be recognised as Menopause Employer Friendly, independently accredited by Menopause Friendly.

    Evelyn Dickey, Menopause Friendly Accreditation Independent Panel member said: “Congratulations to the team at Thames Valley Police who demonstrated brilliant work across a wide-range of areas and have achieved a lot in a relatively short time.

    "Really innovative work and also clearly working beyond their workplace to encourage other parts of the community to better understand the menopause. Well done to the team.”

    The Thames Valley Workforce is currently made up of 47.9% women, including staff and police officers.

    The force says that with a growing female workforce and a heightened national conversation around Menopause, it was important that it recognised a need to improve its support.

    Chief Constable John Campbell QPM said: "In Thames Valley Police, as an organisation striving to be a workplace where everyone can flourish, we are committed to raising awareness, increasing support and investing in training for the workforce about the impact of the menopause. We are extremely proud of becoming the first UK police force to be granted this accreditation. It is testament to the hard work and focus that has gone into enhancing our practices and procedures.”

    As well as this, the force has also been named as a finalist in two categories of the industry-recognised Menopause Friendly Employer Awards - powered by HSBC UK, first direct and M&S Bank.
