In-Work Support Service

The In-Work Support Service provides rapid access to tailored occupational therapy, physiotherapy and psychological therapy services, designed to help employed or self-employed people return to work or manage a health condition in work due to a:-

  • Mental health problem; or
  • Musculoskeletal problem.

Tailored support is also available for people that have been furloughed.

People can contact the service and speak directly to a specialist adviser. A GP or employer (or any other interested party) may also signpost an employee towards the service.

The In-Work Support Service also offers free support and training directly to businesses in the private and third sector, who often lack access to occupational health services.

A programme of training is available to help employers identify the wellbeing needs of the workforce, and implement a tailored programme of measures designed to improve wellness at work, including training workshops and wellbeing treatments.
