Become a migraine friendly workplace
Migraine is most common among adults of working age and effects 1 in 7 of the population. It can impact working life but this can be significantly reduced if people with migraine are supported at work.
People with migraine often need only a little help from their employer, but this small amount of support can be decisive in enabling them to work effectively with migraine.
