Employee Assistance Programme

24 Nov 2022

Access free health, wellbeing and financial advice

In these challenging times, we understand that many members of our broad University Manchester Community will be affected by the current cost-of-living crisis. Over the coming weeks, we’ll be sharing with you a range of information and resources on financial wellbeing.

This week, we’d like to remind colleagues about our Employee Assistance Programme, provided by Validium. It’s a free anonymous service which offers support on a range of issues, including emotional and physical health, mental health, relationships, managing stress and anxiety, money issues and more.

You can access the following help: 

• Telephone Support

• Counselling – online and face to face

• Signposting to Specialist Agencies

• vClub Information & Resources

• General Health & Wellbeing Support

• Legal Information

• Money & Debt Support

Contact Validium 

To access the service all 0800 358 5997 or +44 141 271 7555  (landline alternative for international and/or mobile use) to speak to an advisor.

Lines are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year – you’ll always be able to speak to someone who can help. Calls are confidential and what you say will never be shared with anyone at the University.
