Employment Assistance Programme (EAP) Scheme
This voluntary programme provides an absolutely confidential source of assistance to members of staff and their families experiencing problems (i.e. relating to family, stress, career, financial, legal, alcohol, bereavement or emotional problems). For more information click here.
The EAP aims to provide, via PPC, a FREE CONFIDENTIAL counselling service. Six sessions of counselling are available for each staff member and members of their family to discuss any issue.
The programme is entirely voluntary, and is designed to allow members of staff to seek confidential help on their own initiative.
Issues can be broad-ranging and can include:
- Bereavement and Loss
- Addiction Programmes
- Career Crisis and Financial Problems
- Stress Management
- Bullying and Harassment
- Relationship Issues, Family / Marital Stress
All consultations with the EAP Counsellor are on a completely confidential basis. Staff are assured that job security, seniority, wage rates, benefits and promotional opportunities will not be jeopardised by a request for consultation or treatment by an EAP Counsellor.
