At Working Well, we care deeply about empowering people who have been affected by mental health challenges to move towards better health, wellbeing and sense of community. All our client focused services offer support to people who have been affected by emotional or mental health issues to take steps towards improving their own health wellbeing by developing new skills, finding paid work, or even starting their own business. Our services support individuals with mental health conditions, neurodiverse and have learning disabilities.
As an employment specialist charity, we engage employers to identify and manage workplace causes of poor mental health. Our core mission is to work with employers to effectively manage and support staff impacted by mental health challenges. Good workplace mental health leads to better staff engagement, reduces absenteeism and leads to more productive staff, while also improving individuals own morale and job satisfaction.
