About us

Welcome to Education Support. We are the only UK charity dedicated to improving the health and wellbeing of education staff. Find out about what we do and how this could help you.


Our mission is to improve the mental health and wellbeing of teachers and education staff. We believe that better mental health leads to better education.

We support individuals and help schools, colleges and universities to improve the mental health and wellbeing of their staff. We also carry out research and advocate for changes in Government policy for the benefit of the education workforce.

For education staff 


Our free and confidential helpline is open 24/7 on 08000 562 561 and is staffed by qualified counsellors. It is available for everyone working in education, including support staff, lecturers, administrators and teaching assistants.

Call us. We’ll listen.


Our grants service helps working in or retired education staff experiencing short-term financial issues. Use our online form to apply for a grant

For education organisations


Our website has information and advice on topics including:

  • grappling with work-life balance
  • handling stress
  • managing disagreements at school
  • managing your time
  • relationships at work
  • managing difficult student behaviour

Visit our resources page for more.


We publish research including the annual Teacher Wellbeing Index, a comprehensive and robust insight into the mental health and wellbeing of all education staff. 

How we do it

We exist thanks to the generosity of our donors and income from our work with organisations. Please donate to help us be there for education staff

Our work is overseen by a Board of Trustees, many of whom have personal experience of education. Our staff are committed to improving the mental health and wellbeing of education staff throughout the UK.
