A Counselling and Welfare Service for Elected Councillors was set up in 2020 by AILG, in partnership with the County and City Management Association (CCMA).
Local Councillors’ frontline role in the public arena brings its own pressures which can
impact on a Councillor’s mental health and well-being. The AILG felt it was imperative to have services in place to support our members as they navigate the issues which
impact on their daily life as a public representative.
Elected Members can access the counselling & welfare service’ free of charge by
speaking directly to their Corporate Services within their Local Authority.
