Health and Wellbeing

Your health and wellbeing 

The health and wellbeing of colleagues within the Council is of continued importance and it is recognised that at times life in and out of work can be difficult. To help you cope with these situations we have a number of initiatives in place to support employees.  

Employee Assistance Programme

Our EAP is provided by Health Assured Limited. Health Assured is an independent, external organisation that will listen to your concerns in the strictest of confidence. Services include: Counselling Support, Legal Information, Bereavement Assistance, Medical information  & more.   


Health Champions

Health Champions are essential in supporting staff to improve their health and wellbeing. They provide a caring, confidential listening ear where staff feel that they would benefit talking to a neutral person. 

Champions also challenge the stigma of mental health and increase understanding. Other Initiatives in place include a free and confidential Employee Assistance programme, and Occupational Health Service
