Wellbeing support for staff

Our Employee Assistance Programme is a 24-hour support service for staff.

Health Assured is the University’s support service for staff, offering information, signposting and support for a range of difficult experiences (e.g. family matters, major life events, changing jobs, consumer matters). The 24 hour / 365 days-a-year telephone helpline links you with a responder who will help you find the most appropriate source of support. The University’s counselling offer for staff is provided by Health Assured.

Contact the helpline on 0800 316 9337.

Support is confidential and staff can self-refer. There is no need to inform your line manager. Your contact with Health Assured will be managed in confidence. Register with Health Assured now using the access code: worklife and password: worklife
