Can you help us 'Bridge the Gap?'

Our new Bridging the Gap service helps people who have health conditions preventing them from moving closer to employment. We will help them to manage their condition, feel ready to work and help them get back to work more quickly.

The service is aimed at people who:

  • are unemployed.

  • are affected by long term physical or mental health conditions that feel their condition impacts their ability to work.

  • are struggling to cope with their health condition.

  • feel that their circumstances (debt/domestic etc.) are contributing to their ability to cope with their health condition.

  • have lost confidence in their ability to work

What kind of support will individuals receive?

Individuals will receive 1-2-1 support from a dedicated Case Manager who will work with service users to help them understand the problems they may face in returning to employment. Once the obstacles have been identified they will support the service user to solve them. This could include:

  • Personal support

  • Advice on managing your health condition

  • Debt/financial advice

  • Housing advice

  • Confidence building

How can individuals be referred into the service?

They can be referred into the service by a GP or through their Work Coach.

A copy of the referral forms are to the left of this page.
