Signing the Charter (l to r) Dave Howe, Fire Brigades Union; Councillor Jan Brunton Dobson, Chair, Cleveland Fire Authority; Beth Farhat, Regional Secretary, Northern Region TUC, Eddie Jeffries, Unison and Chief Fire Officer Ian Hayton

Cleveland Fire Brigade has pledged to support, protect and guide any staff diagnosed with a terminal illness.

By signing-up to the TUC “Dying to Work” charter the Brigade continues to recognise that additional support and understanding is needed.

Ian Hayton, Chief Fire Officer Cleveland Fire Brigade, said: “It was an easy decision to sign-up and make a formal commitment to the work we already do. Sometimes people have to work through very difficult circumstances and it is our job to make sure they get the help and support they need and are treated with the utmost dignity.”

Chair of Cleveland Fire Authority Councillor Jan Brunton-Dobson added: “Cleveland Fire Brigade is a caring organisation that cares for the public, local communities and staff and we are delighted to pledge our support for such a hugely important campaign.”


The Dying to Work charter outlines:

• Recognising terminal illness requires support and understanding
• Terminally ill employees are secure in the knowledge that they will be supported
• They have security of work, peace of mind and the right to choose the best course of actions for themselves and families
• All employees battling terminal illness have adequate employment protection
