Information taken from Success In Schools Ltd.’s Safeguarding Briefing from the 4th February 2019, by Andrew Hall.

The Education Support Partnership is the UK’s only charity providing mental health and wellbeing support services to all education staff and organisations. They are there for you, and yet I meet many people who are not aware of them.

The Education Support Partnership offers telephone support and counselling, email support and live chat, training and development, information and advice, and even grants.


There are many stresses on those who work in education – a challenging student, stress & depression, personal financial worries and so many more. That’s why the Partnership offers free, confidential help and support, no matter what the problem. Trained counsellors listen without judgement. No issue is too big or too small.

The free and confidential helpline is available 24/7 to everyone working in education and is available UK wide on 08000 562 561.

Schools can also buy-in to further services including:

  • confidential emotional support and counselling available 24 hours a day, 365 days a week
  • up to six sessions of face-to-face or telephone counselling
  • access to online Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
  • management consultation to support those responsible for managing others
  • specialist information on work-life balance
  • financial and legal information
  • information on local services such as elder care and childcare

Free Helpline: 08000 562 561 (24 hours)
