EAPA UK — the Employee Assistance Professionals Association — is a not-for-profit organisation that represents the interests of individuals and organisations concerned with employee assistance, psychological health and wellbeing in the UK. Members include external and internal EAP providers, purchasers, counsellors, consultants and trainers working in the field of employee health and wellbeing. Our mission is to promote the highest standards of practice and the continuing development of employee assistance programmes (EAPs) in the UK and the Association exists to:
- Support, advance and develop the EAP industry in the UK
- Promote the development of the employee assistance profession
- Develop, maintain and apply standards of practice, guidelines and a code of ethics to members
UK EAPA was established in 1998 and works beyond the EAPA global standards that are adapted local to the UK market; this makes the UK EAPA Standards of Professional Practice the only credible set of standards to which EAP providers operate.
