Giving local people the knowledge and independence to create better lives for themselves and their communities through employment

We know everyone is different, that's why our service is tailored around you and your needs. We work with a range of people including health professionals, employment specialists and local community organisations to create a support package to help you find the right job, at the right time.

Work and Health provides support for those unemployed people with health conditions or disabilities. It is also designed to help those individuals who have been out of work for a long time as well as those who might need some specialist support.

Get Involved

If you haven’t yet joined Work and Health you
can follow these simple steps to get involved:

Step 1

Speak to your JCP Work Coach about the programme to see if it is right for you.

Step 2

If you are successfully referred you will be contacted within 48 hours to arrange an appointment.

Step 3

You will meet your dedicated Key Worker giving you both the chance to get to know each other. You will get the opportunity to explain your personal circumstances, your health conditions or disability, and chat about your hopes for the future. The more your Key Worker knows about you the better support they can provide.

Step 4
