Additional FREE Wellbeing Support for School Staff
The county council is giving all schools in the county, including independent, academies and academy trusts free access to specialist support to look after their staff wellbeing.
The programme is funded with money received from the government’s ‘Contain Outbreak Management Fund’ (COMF) which provides local authorities with assistance to support public health as a result of the pandemic.
Employee Assistance Programme
With effect from 1 May 2021 - 31 March 2023, all staff in schools across Gloucestershire will be able to access support from a 24 hour Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) provided by Health Assured, one of the UK’s leading providers of Employee Assistance.
In addition to the support offered by the Employee Assistance Programme, we are also able to extend our Reflective Supervision service by offering a further 30 places to school staff funded through the COMF budget.
