The Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) is a great resource for staff. It provides emotional support through telephone assessment at any time of the day. If the assessment shows it is appropriate, staff can access up to 8 sessions of face to face or telephone counselling. Care first also operates a system of telephone support with call handlers with trained expertise in life solutions, for example, debt, benefits. legal, family and caring responsibilities.
Care first runs webinars on a variety of subjects every week. You can now watch a recording of a webinar for University of Kent staff that took place on Wednesday 14 April, and learn more on what the EAP has to offer, first hand.
