How to access the Wellbeing Advisers

Please complete this form to access wellbeing support. We will get back to you within seven working days.

Appointments can be conducted via telephone or Microsoft Teams or face-to-face.

Please visit our emergency, health and crisis support pages if you need support urgently.

What you discuss in appointments is treated confidentially.  

The exception to this is where there is significant welfare or safeguarding concerns.

In such situations, we would ideally share information with your consent, but in situations where immediate action is required (to save a life for example), we may notify emergency services such as the Police or Paramedics.
