Richmond Fellowship has a long and highly successful track record in employment services.
We use the individual placement and support (IPS) model, which gets people into competitive employment first with training and support on the job: place and train.
Our employment advisors focus on an individual’s strenths and opportunities and reflect on what someone can do rather than on what they can’t. To find out more download our Employment Support Flyer.
Our schemes include:
- Individualised action planning with advisors who have specific training in order to recognise and work with mental health problems
- A person-centred approach which identifies individuals’ skills, values and interests
- Employment preparation courses, assertiveness training and help to develop IT skills
- Support in job searching, CV preparation, completing job applications, and preparing for interviews
- Advice on disclosure of mental health issues to employers and, where appropriate, we work with an individual and their employer to provide ongoing support in their work place.
