Upskill supports Tower Hamlets residents to move towards employment, access to volunteering and training. Support is provided on a one-to-one basis, focusing on your individual needs and ambitions. You may want to improve your skills, experience, employment, confidence and wellbeing. Opportunities and guidance include:


  • Volunteer or Work Experience Placements                                                        
  • Education and training opportunities
  • CV and job applications
  • Interview practice                                                   


Our knowledge of what is available in the borough means we can help you access the right information to support your journey into meaningful activities and towards your ultimate goal.




Finding and retaining paid work can play a significant part in helping your mental health recovery.

However, it can be daunting to start the process of finding employment, especially when you have been out of work for a while or never had the opportunity to build a career in the first place. 

Our Employment Specialists can make a difference. The one to one support we provide is unlike any other jobseekers programme. We are based within the Community Mental Health Team offices and work in partnership with clinical staff to support you with all your employment needs.

Our offer

In practice, this means you can expect a FREE and confidential individual service designed around what you want and need. We assist with your CV and job application process as well as confidence building and skills development. We will contact employers and negotiate on your behalf and with your permission. We help you assess the impact of job income on your benefits. We also prepare you in starting your new job and offer ongoing support for as long as you need us. 

To access our service

All we require is that you want to work and are ready to engage with employers within 4 weeks of your first appointment with us.

You will also need to be a service user of The Newham Community Recovery Teams (North or South), including outpatients’ clinics, The Newham Assessment and Brief Treatment Team or The Newham Early Intervention Service.

For more information, please speak to your clinical support team or e-mail

This hugely successful service offers a CBT focused employment advice care pathway to residents of Tower Hamlets. We can help you find, return and remain in work if you have low to moderate common mental health difficulties. We were thrilled to be recently recognised as one of the top 3 most performing projects in England, and will do all we can to support you into work.
