Get in touch Policy & practice

It is the Wellbeing at the Bar (WATB) Programme’s Policy that we are willing to advertise Stakeholders’ Wellbeing events, but not to advertise the goods, services or events of third parties.

The Bar Council, individual stakeholders in the WATB Programme, and the WATB Working Group membership, welcome comments and ideas from those wishing to work with us to improve Wellbeing at the Bar.
