Access to Employment: D2N2 Healthy Work CLOSED


This call aims to procure services to support individuals address and overcome their health and wellbeing issues to allow for movement into sustained employment. It will deliver joined-up targeted support to get people who are seeking employment – but who have multiple, complex or deep barriers to getting a job – into sustainable employment. It will also support individuals’ career progression through raising their skills levels, to meet the changing requirements of business.

Projects should target participants who are unemployed and claiming benefits with day one access but excluding those people who are on the Work and Health Programme. Under this Call, applicants are encouraged to prioritise people with complex and multiple barriers to work, who may or may not be claiming benefit and especially those furthest from the labour market. The project should not compete with DWP provision and should prioritise entry to people with moderate to severe mental health issues, learning difficulties, autism, dyslexia, substance misuse, muscular skeletal problems and long-term health conditions.
