The Work Place

A space where you can come and meet with others, learn new things and have your own Work Recovery Coach who will help you with your job seeking and managing your mental health for work.

The Work Place

From one to one sessions to group work and in-work support, The Work Place is a hub where your well-being can be supported by experienced staff and peer volunteers.

The Work Recovery Coach will will be the main point of contact for you throughout your time with us, but you will also work with the other staff and volunteers

Through the Work Place, we also run a programme of workshops across three terms in each calendar year. These workshops aim to provide an opportunity to learn and develop skills and confidence – when the time is right for you. Our aim is to provide a balance in terms of learning skills associated with applying for work and creative and wellbeing activities designed to enrich our lives and promote good mental health. We hope this will instil a good work/life balance for all involved, whichever stage of the journey you are on.  View our latest prospectus.
