Staff welfare

These welfare services are available to Isle of Man Government employees only.

For all of us there are times when we may need help or support with a problem, either at work or in our personal lives. Sometimes this can be found by talking to a friend, relative, colleague or line-manager.

Occasionally it can help to talk to someone who is independent and removed from the situation.
