Employment Services

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 strengths and opportunities and reflect on what someone can do rather than on what they can’t.

Our services include:

  • Individualised action planning with advisors who have specific training in order to recognise and work with mental ill health
  • 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 ill health to employers and, where appropriate, we work with an individual and their employer to provide ongoing support in their work place.
