Richmond Fellowship’s BSW Individual Placement and Support (IPS) Employment Service specialises in providing support for people living with or recovering from mental ill health to find paid employment, voluntary work, education and training or to retain their current employment.
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.
Who we help
You can access our service if you are aged 18 or over, motivated to get a paid job and willing to start actively job searching and are receiving key-worker support from one of the following:
AWP Community Mental Health Team
AWP Early Intervention Service
Wiltshire Council Mental Health Social Work Team.
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.
Richmond Fellowship is part of Recovery Focus, a group of charities with the shared aim to Inspire Recovery Together.
