School Wellbeing Service

Cymraeg 

The School Wellbeing Service is free for schools across Wales with a focus on staff wellbeing. Our dedicated wellbeing specialist will work with you by providing resources and advice on policies and practices that support staff mental health and wellbeing.

A headteacher in Wales who has received support from the service said:

“There has never been a greater time I believe for requiring effective wellbeing support for leaders and education staff and we are very grateful to Education Support and the part you are playing during the pandemic.”
