To support you in staying healthy and happy at work, we offer a wide range of wellbeing support, services and events. There is a dedicated wellbeing microsite within The Employee Hub, through which you can also access the Employee Assistance Programme that the University launched in November 2018.

This is a professional service manned by qualified professionals who you can talk to in private about anything that is bothering you, whether it’s personal or to do with work. No issue is off limits, this could include aspects such as domestic or family issues, consumer rights, bereavement, bullying or financial and debt support, Up to 6 free face-to-face counselling sessions per year are available.
