Established in 1877 as a benevolent fund for teachers, we have been continuously evolving to meet the changing needs of the education sector. Today we are proud to support anyone working in education, at any level and in any institution.
With a record number of educators leaving the profession, we are needed more than ever. Stress and anxiety levels across the sector are reaching alarming levels and calls to our helpline are increasing year on year.
We champion good mental health and wellbeing of teachers, lecturers, school leaders, support staff and prison educators throughout their careers and during retirement as well as supporting education leaders with a wide range of tools to help improve professional and organisational development too.
That everyone working in education is respected, supported and resilient.
We give all educators, present and past, access to support services in their workplace and outside. We champion their health and wellbeing, because that is how our education sector will thrive. We recognise each individual as a person as well as a professional.
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 we offer free, confidential help and support, no matter what the problem. Our trained counsellors listen without judgement. No issue is too big or too small.
Our free and confidential helpline is available 24/7 to everyone working in education and is available UK wide on 08000 562 561.
