Redbridge IPS Employment Service Store in Wanstead

Categories: Employment Service

Who we are

Richmond Fellowship’s Redbridge 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 or to retain their current employment.

IPS is a way of working that has been found to be the most effective way of getting people into work. It is different to other employment support models because the focus is on working directly with employers to find jobs based on the preferences of the people we support, and Employment Specialists working closely with mental health clinical teams.

What we do

We offer support to achieve employment goals by:

• Providing 1:1 support with an Employment Specialist to write an effective CV and cover letter, submit job applications and help to get through interviews
• Focussing on the interests and preferences of the people we support – nobody is forced into a job they don’t want to do
• Working with employers – we try to match the preferences of the people we support with employers’ needs
• Preparing for starting work, such as back to work benefit calculations and budgeting
• Providing time unlimited support to stay in work, supporting both the individual and the employer.

Who we help

We help anyone who expresses a desire to work, regardless of job readiness factors or work history.

The only criteria we have is that people wishing to access the service must be receiving support from one of the secondary care community mental health teams (CMHTs) in Redbridge.

Referrals can be made via the secondary care mental health team or a self-referral form can be obtained by emailing redbridgeIPS@richmondfellowship.org.uk.
