We're delighted to announce that VCSE sector groups & organisations across Gloucestershire will be able to continue to receive free health & wellbeing support via The Wellbeing Line until 2025.

After a successful 6-month pilot, followed by an extension in late 2023, we are continuing our partnership with The Wellbeing Line so that the sector can continue to access this service.

About the Wellbeing Line

The Wellbeing Line offers free and confidential mental health & wellbeing support for anyone working in Health & Social Care in Gloucestershire. It is a psychologically led service for any individual in any role who is feeling worried, anxious or depressed, as well as free consultations for managers (this includes team leaders, managers and anyone who is line managing others). No prior application is required.

Access support today

Individuals can make initial contact with The Wellbeing Line by calling 0300 421 7500, for a supportive and non-judgmental conversation. They will then work together with a psychologist to make sense of what is going on and think about possible ways forward, which may include further support and, in some cases, further clinical assessment with a clinical psychologist.

Managers and team leaders can call 0300 421 7500 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you/they are concerned about an individual in their team or would like to talk about how best to support their teams. You/they will be offered a telephone or MS Teams consultation with a clinical psychologist who will think together with you/them about possible ways forward.

Confidential and independent

The Wellbeing Line service is confidential and completely independent of employers (line management/HR/occupational health), GPs and Gloucestershire VCS Alliance. Nothing is written in any personal records.
