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.
