Testimonials

The following customers used the Workplace Mental Health Support Service, a free and confidential service available to anyone with mental health problems that are threatening their job, delivered by Remploy on behalf of the Department for Work and Pensions.

I have worked with Rod for six months and I have asked him to work with me again because I am on a review at work.

Rod is considerate, professional and kind. He has kept all our appointments and has outlined what support he can provide at each step.

This job has been my first job for 20 years, it has taken a while to build up my skills and confidence.

Rod has encouraged and advised me on issues in the workplace and how to overcome them, he also provided an online course about self-esteem, which has been very beneficial.

He has listened with empathy and kindness. Rod obviously cares about his clients and his work and I have found his support invaluable as I stepped back into work."

I was referred to Remploy after a car accident in 2014 left me with support needs.

I am grateful as it's been overwhelming and distressing knowing that I can't function the same way I did before the accident. However, knowing I have Remploy to support me gives me confidence and helps me to feel protected when making a request for reasonable adjustments.

Knowing that I can contact my support worker who will reassure and advise me, and advocate on my behalf with my employers, has really helped me manage my anxiety about retaining my position and staying in work.

They have also helped me understand and accept my physical and invisible disabilities. I feel lucky and relieved that I was referred to Remploy. I appreciate the support very much and would recommend colleagues should their needs arise."

I’m deeply indebted to Duncan for all his help and support during my depression, from initial ‘meltdown’ to successful post-Asperger’s diagnosis and phased return to work. It’s been a long, up-and-down journey, where I‘ve been blindsided by more than a few unforeseen factors delaying my recovery but Duncan’s been right there for me.
Particularly significant was Duncan accompanying me and my wife to my Asperger’s assessment - his input there was invaluable from a workplace perspective. My colleagues, immediate line manager and senior management have also all been very impressed with the help, support and guidance Duncan’s given us.

Too often the terms ‘great guy’ and ‘genuine bloke’ can be used to describe someone, but with Duncan such labels truly fit. He is, as they say, ‘a credit to the profession’. You have a real asset with him!"
