Employment advice during COVID-19

Our employment team have created this information pack on employment advice, specifically for during COVID-19. 

This pack includes information on job retention, in-work support, advice for working from home, claiming benefits, finding new work and employment advice.

Finding and retaining paid work can play a significant part in your recovery from mental health condition. Benefits include the daily structure a job brings, an expansion of your social and support networks, an increase in income and a sense of an identity other than that of a mental health service user. 

Sometimes it can be difficult to look for employment, especially after having had a break from the work place. That is where our Employment Specialists can make a difference.
