Into Work

We know how vital employment can be for people, both mentally and practically in terms of providing purpose and financial stability. Into Work is a new holistic employment service providing wraparound support to help people living with mental health conditions back into employment. Thanks to our partnership with Bank of America, our Into Work service has been rolled out to adults living in Harrow (London), Gravesend (Kent) and Wrexham (North Wales). 

How we can help?

We provide you with a tailored recovery/ vocational plan and explore pathways to your employment needs and aspirations; supporting and empowering you to achieve them.

If eligible, you will be invited for an informal chat with an employment specialist to discuss your present situation and what your needs are.

We will explore the various options to help you achieve your goals during regular one-to-one meetings and action plans. Into Work is a community-based service tailored to meet the individual’s needs, using a mixture of face-to-face, phone calls and virtual support.

Joining our programme is voluntary and you can leave at any point. Your benefit entitlement will not be affected by use of this service.

Targeted, caring, supporting, reflective, non-judgemental - it’s all true of Into Work. They helped me feel I’m worth something. My adviser helped me focus on my interview confidence, which I took to my interview and got the job! Good to have them in your corner.

When I first spoke to someone from Into Work, I felt nervous ... But instantly I was impressed at how understanding the advisor was, I felt at ease talking about things. I walked out of my first appointment feeling like I had a plan in place and supported. Into Work has really helped build my confidence which has helped with my social anxiety. I am now in work that I love. I wake up every morning and feel positive about the day ahead.
