Can you help us 'Bridge the Gap?'

The service helps people who have health conditions preventing them from moving closer to employment. We will help you to manage your condition, feel ready to work and help you get back to work more quickly.

The service is aimed at people:

  • with long term physical or mental health conditions that feel their condition impacts their ability to work

  • who are struggling to cope with their health condition

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

  • who have lost confidence in their ability to work


What kind of support will I receive?

You will receive 1-2-1 support from a dedicated Case Manager who will work with you to help you understand the problems you may face in returning to employment and help you to solve them. This could include:

  • Personal support

  • Advice on managing your health condition

  • Debt/financial advice

  • Housing advice

  • Confidence building

How can I be referred into the service?

You can be referred into the service by your GP or through a Job Centre Plus Work Coach. Alternatively you can print a ‘Bridging the Gap referral form’ from the tab to the left of this page.
