Teacher Support Network

The helpline dedicated to school teachers and staff in FE and HE



What we do

At Teacher Support Network we believe that no teacher should have to cope with emotional strain alone, which is why we're always here to listen. Our dedicated helpline, the only one of its kind, is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. More about us

Support our work

There are plenty of ways to help us provide emergency support for your colleagues - from doing a fundraising event in our name to a one-off or regular financial contribution.
