The UK National Work-Stress Network

A voluntary organisation that campaigns to secure proper recognition of the damage caused by work-stress and to prevent work-related stress.

We aim to educate and raise awareness of work-stress and to improve legislation on health, safety and employment rights in the UK and Europe.
