Happy New Year to everyone.

Did you know?
The Assistance Programme is a true confidential and compassionate 24/7 service helping more than 9.5 million people overcome physical, mental, social and financial challenges.
The programme is there to support barristers, pupils, and staff through the challenges faced through Covid-19, from financial issues to bereavement.
The Bar Council has introduced a Certificate of Recognition as a means of acknowledging the huge efforts made across the profession to support the wellbeing of barristers, clerks and chambers’ staff.
If your organisation can demonstrate a commitment to wellbeing through a policy, programme or initiative, and would like to apply for a Certificate of Recognition, you can find further information here.
We regularly circulate information and updates, with links to useful resources to all wellbeing officers/those with responsibility for wellbeing across the Bar. If you would like to receive this update, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
The coronavirus pandemic has impacted on all areas of life. If you are struggling you are not alone. Wellbeing at the Bar has resources to support you with difficult experiences related to the pandemic; including bereavement, anxiety and stress, mental health, financial hardship, and working life.
Chancery Bar have made their wellbeing resources available to the whole bar, see here.
