Access to Work Mental Health Support Service Launched

The UK Government Department for Work and Pensions has launched the ‘Access to Work Mental Health Support Service’ that is delivered by Remploy. The service “provides confidential support to help you remain in your job.” It is a free service to those in England, Scotland and Wales.

Their advisers can help with:

  • Workplace support for nine months
  • Coping strategies
  • A wellbeing plan
  • Workplace adjustments
  • Getting support from your employer, if you’d like us to.

To be eligible, you must be:

  • In permanent or temporary employment (working or signed off sick)
  • Have a mental health condition that has made you miss work, or is making it difficult to remain in work.

For more information, visit the Remploy website.

Barnardo’s staff can also use the Employee Assistance Programme. UNISON Members can get in touch with the Barnardo’s Branch for workplace support.
