Who we are

What we do

BSW Individual Placement and Support is a specialist employment service for adults looking to return to the workplace as part of their recovery from mental ill health.

Getting referred

On referral:

  • The Social Work or CMHT team will contact the service or Employment Specialist directly to discuss and complete the referral on behalf of clients.
  • An Employment Specialist will then contact the client and arrange meetings on a regular basis to provide support with looking for employment, developing a detailed work preference profile to ensure the work is suited to the individual.
  • You can also self-refer direct to the IPS team and they will contact your designated keyworker from CMHT/EIP or social work team.
