Helping you find work

Supporting You

The journey taken to employment is as individual as people are. Exploring the barriers faced in finding and maintaining work is usually the starting point of this journey.

Not everything is about your mental health. Other factors such as childcare responsibilities, travel restrictions or unsuitable accommodation can all contribute to anxieties over gaining employment. At Working for Health, we understand the stresses and problems that life often throws at us and our team of Work Recovery Coaches and Peer Volunteers support you all the way.

For the first time in years I feel positive and enthusiastic about recovering my mental well-being and, ultimately, returning to full-time employment. This wouldn’t have been possible without the help and support offered by Working for Health.

At Working for Health we understand that to get a job you need to make sure that your skills, education and experience match the role, but there’s more to it than that. To feel confident about yourself and to work well, you need to look after yourself and challenge the problems that are holding you back. We recognise that it’s not just about looking for a job.

Everyone who uses our service has a named worker who will work with you through the journey. They will encourage and help you to:

  • Build Resilience
  • Manage your mental health
  • Meet your responsibilities
  • Eat Well
  • Keep Active
  • Take part in your community
  • Connect with Friends
  • Keep Learning

We will help you all the way.

Current funded programmes include Action Towards Inclusion and The Workplace.  Find out more >
