Improving the health and wellbeing of people experiencing mental health conditions

Remploy is working in partnership with NHS North-West in St Helens to deliver an innovative pilot project called Individual Placement Support (IPS).

With the project having already been trialled elsewhere by Remploy, with very positive outcomes, both organisations are confident that the pilot will achieve some fantastic results.By addressing unemployment, the aim of IPS is to deliver an effective intervention to social inclusion by improving health, reducing isolation and addressing the employment needs of adults with a mental health condition in the area. 

The project is designed to support NHS North-West to achieve its objective of becoming an exemplar employer of socially excluded adults by increasing the amount of disadvantaged people in their workforce.
