Employee Assistance Programme

Sometimes it can be difficult to balance the pressures of work with the needs of home life. Your employer recognises help is sometimes needed to deal with the challenges you may face in life, both practical and emotional. Health Assured provides confidential support services which are available to you.

What is an Employee Assistance Programme (EAP)?

An EAP is a confidential employee benefit designed to help you deal with personal and professional problems that could be affecting your home life or work life, health and general wellbeing.

Our EAP service provides a complete support network that offers expert advice and compassionate guidance 24/7, covering a wide range of issues. We strongly believe in providing an EAP service that offers not only reactive support when someone needs it but also proactive and preventative support to deliver the best possible outcomes.

At Health Assured we pride ourselves on offering the highest level of service quality, assured through the calibre of people we employ and our exceptional clinical governance infrastructure.

With Health Assured there really is a better way

Balancing everyday life with the requirements of work and home can create pressures for all of us. Work is a large part of people’s lives. With increasing working hours as well as technological developments to support remote working, it is vital to ensure that there’s a productive, healthy environment that is conducive to a healthy lifestyle.
Health Assured, in partnership with Manchester Schools’ Alliance provides all employees with complimentary access to an enhanced Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) to assist you in achieving this balance.
