What happens next

Step 3

After you have been confirmed to start on the Work and Health Programme, 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

Your Key Worker will coordinate everything for you, from recommending group workshops to arranging one-to-one support from our qualified health professionals. They can also suggest online courses, help you with your IT skills and even provide in-work support as and when you feel ready to move into work.
