The Bar Council’s Wellbeing at the Bar programme aims to:

  • Provide barristers and chambers’ personnel with the information and skills they need in order to stay well
  • Support members of the profession through difficulties that affect a barrister’s professional life
  • Provide assistance to those responsible for or who are supporting those in difficulty or crisis

For resources and information on staying well go the Wellbeing at the Bar website.


The Bar Council’s Wellbeing at the Bar Working Group has introduced a Certificate of Recognition as a means of acknowledging the huge efforts made across the profession to support the wellbeing of barristers, clerks and chambers’ staff.

If your organisation can demonstrate a commitment to wellbeing through a policy, programme or initiative, and would like to apply for a Certificate of Recognition, please find further information here and submit your application to SMercer@BarCouncil.org.uk.
