What we do

Everyone has skills and talents, we’ll help you find them!

The current situation

According to Public Health England, as of 2016, less than half of those who report mental illness as their main health problem were employed. Everyone has the right to work and be an active member of our society, but people with mental health conditions are significantly less likely to be employed.

“Almost 1 in 6 people of working age have a diagnosable mental health condition.”

Public Health England | 2016

However, we believe that everyone has the skills and talents to work, if the work is right for them.

About us

Specialist provider of employment support

Working for Health is a specialist provider of employment support for people with mental health conditions. We understand the challenges you face in finding work. It’s not all about your CV. We will help you look at a whole range of options for building confidence and resilience, overcoming your barriers, making applications and starting work. Working for Health will support you every step of the way, at a pace to suit you.

At Working for Health we will:

• Develop hopes for the future.
• Support you to create your personal action plan to help you to be where you want to be.
• Look at the obstacles that may be in your way and work to eliminate them or reduce them.
• Speak with employers, colleges, voluntary organisations to provide tailored help.
• Help with job applications, interview preparation and CV preparation.
• Once you secure your job position, you will still receive the help that you need.

Support and advice

We provide the same quality of services across Hull and East Riding, but the delivery is slightly different:

At The Work Place in Hull you can meet with other people in a similar situation, attend individual or group training sessions and workshops, and have full access to our IT suite and recovery library.

In the East Riding, one to one services tailored to individual needs are provided through the Action Towards Inclusion programme. Find out more.
