Geographical remit: 


We work with people who have severe and enduring mental health conditions and our service offers support into employment and with retention of existing employment. A wealth of research (see Centre for M.H.) has shown the significant benefits of being in work to the long term health and wellbeing of our clients. Employment provides structure, purpose, company, normalisation and reward and these are fundamental to sustaining good mental health.


We provide Individual Placement and Support (IPS) services across Essex and Suffolk, in partnership with the Essex Partnership Foundation Trust (EPUT). We also provide a Job Retention service covering Essex with our partner. IPS is the particular model of supported employment that has proved to be most effective at securing and sustaining employment for people with enduring mental ill health..
