Find good work

Good Work supports amazing people – including those living with a severe mental health condition – to find, stay and thrive in employment.

Our Good Work coaches provide one-to-one support to find paid employment that’s just right for you. We promise to be your advocate and see your potential, and can support you to find full or part-time work. We’ll also help with any debt, benefit and wellbeing support, and remain there for you in your new job role.

We also support employers to keep their workforce well, and offer training and advice from our experienced and friendly team of professionals.

We promise to:

  • Be your advocate and see your potential.
  • Involve you in all decisions, be with you not for you.
  • Be effective, not just kind and compassionate.
  • Be easy to contact and meet and get back to you promptly when you get in touch.
  • Support you to find a job with the hours, skills and experience that is right for you.

“Being back at work has really changed my life. I’m so happy that I’m busy, that I have things to fill my day. I like that I’m part of a team and I’m valued by the people I work with. It has really helped to get my social life back. My wife and I go out for meals together again, it’s lovely.”

“I get to work with people that I really like and they love me there, I’ve already been promoted! Now I’m saving up to take my wife and four kids on holiday. It will be the first time we’ve been abroad. It’s great to have something to look forward to, to feel positive and love every day.”
