“We have been working with SAS for many years and have found them effective, reasonably priced and always ready to help with those unusual situations that don’t fit in or around the normal policy. Working with our account manager Jo, she has helped smooth any issues, she is very attentive and ensures that all of our needs are met; she is a pleasure to deal with. I would have no reason not to highly recommend them.” Learning Trust “We started our relationship with Schools Advisory Services (SAS) back in June 2022 across all 18 of our schools and for all of our 1,200 staff. The feedback we have had from colleagues about SAS service provision so far has been universally positive, both in terms of the experience and how prompt and responsive people have found it when accessing it. As a Trust, we feel it’s vital that our staff are able to access assistance and support quickly when they need it most, as such this feedback reinforces our confidence that SAS were the right choice for us for wellbeing services for our Trust.” Chief Operating Officer, Education Trust
