A staff welfare officer is employed by each education and library board and also by the Council for Catholic Maintained Schools (CCMS). The staff welfare officer is available to support teachers’ health and well-being by providing a confidential quality listening service and by offering support, information and guidance on a range of welfare issues.
These may include for example:
- work-related stress;
- relationship problems in or out of work;
- alcohol/drug dependency;
- domestic problems;
- coping with change; or
- ill health.
The staff welfare officer is also available to offer guidance and support to principals and boards of governors managing complex staff welfare matters.
If you have a problem regarding a welfare issue, you are welcome to contact the relevant staff welfare officer for support, guidance and information. The staff welfare officer is available to meet with you to discuss your concerns in confidence, and to offer support and assistance towards helping you reach an appropriate resolution.
