New Bristol Get Well, Get On Employment service

Richmond Fellowship is working in partnership with Bristol City Council to develop a new service called Get Well Get On.

The Employment Retention service will provide support to people who are in work, at risk of falling out of work and who are on sick leave but are still employed with mental ill health and/or muscular-skeletal conditions.

The service will promote self management and provide access to employment advice and support for both individuals and small or medium sized employers.

The new service will be working with existing delivery partners including Bristol City Council, Ways 2 Work Network, Work Zone, Bristol WORKS, Bristol Apprentices and Future Bright.

Richmond Fellowship will also be working with Public Health England, the local Chamber of Commerce, Trade Unions and Project Thrive, the city wide mental health initiative.

The service is about to take its first referrals.

For further details about what the service offers, please email Bristol.GetWellGetOn@richmondfellowship.org.uk.

Richmond Fellowship Cambridge services are radio station’s Charity of the Month

Richmond Fellowship’s services in Cambridge have been chosen as a local radio station’s Charity of the Month for October.

Cambridge 105 Radio selects a different charity operating in the city to support each month by offering a series of radio interviews and podcasts.

It means Richmond Fellowship’s Employment service based in Signet Court, Castle Supported Housing and Winston House Residential services will all have the opportunity to take part in a radio interview to talk about the work they do and receive on air promotion across the month.

The news comes ahead of World Mental Health Day, which takes place on Wednesday 10 October.

Carole Jones, Regional Manager at Richmond Fellowship said:

“We are so grateful to Cambridge 105 Radio for selecting our Cambridge services as their chosen charity for October. It gives us a fantastic opportunity to showcase the excellent recovery work that goes on in our services, supporting people with mental ill health. It’s also very timely with World Mental Health Day just around the corner.”
