Thrive into Work: help for individuals with health conditions into employment
24 Feb 2021 by Mazeline Hemmings
Thrive into Work is a specialised IPS service that supports individuals with health conditions, disabilities or mental health conditions back into employment. The programme currently covers Sandwell, West Birmingham and Wolverhampton. The initiative is funded through the West Midlands Combined Authority and has had a very successful three year trial.
Thrive into Work is a community based provision. However, during lockdown, the Programme has had to adopt new ways on working in a virtual world.
