Employee Assistance Programme - Confidential Care

The University provides an Employee Assistance Programme (EAP), called Confidential Care, as part of our health and well-being strategy to provide a supportive and healthy environment for staff.

Confidential Care gives you a place to turn for support any time of day or night, 365 days a year. Support is available for whatever issues you might be facing, including work stress, depression, marriage and relationship issues, legal concerns, coping with change, parenting issues, financial problems, health issues and much more.

Confidential Care is independent, free and completely confidential, providing a comprehensive range of support and advice services to staff including:

  • Health and wellbeing advice and information
  • Telephone counselling;
  • Face to face counselling;
  • Counselling & emotional support;
  • Everyday matters;
  • Debt & financial management;
  • Legal and tax advice;
  • Family care;

Experienced, professional counsellors are available to listen to your concerns, determine appropriate resources, and then help you take the next steps. Confidential Care is provided by CIC and all counsellors are fully accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
