Maintaining employment, volunteering or training can be a key part of the recovery process. Our Employment and Vocational Support team offers services including skills assessment, supported job search and advice on career change.

“Social exclusion as a result of mental ill health is aggravated by unemployment.”

It is crucial for ongoing recovery and the wellbeing of anyone affected by mental illness to enable their ability to work, not only for financial benefit but also for social identity, social contact, a way of structuring their time, routine and sense of personal achievement.

We provide access to:

  • finding or maintaining employment
  • accessing education and training
  • finding volunteering opportunities
