Get Set for Work Wise.

We are excited to announce that we’ve been awarded a contract to deliver an Individual Placement and Support in Primary Care (IPSPC) programme for Surrey County Council, as part of the Work Wise scheme.

Contract | 4 April 2024

Our large team of Employment Specialists will be providing services to almost 1,000 individuals across Surrey’s top 5 “Key Neighbourhoods”, 📍 including Hooley, Merstham & Netherne, Canalside, Westborough, Stoke and Stanwell North.

Additionally, our services will also support residents accessing community health services and ethnically diverse people, including those who speak English as a second language.

This IPSPC programme provides employment support to adults with long-term conditions or disabilities to help them access and maintain work. This supports Surrey County Council’s system-wide objectives to ‘grow a sustainable economy from which everyone can benefit’, ensure no one is left behind, and everyone is able to fulfil their potential. It recognises employment as a social determinant of health and wellbeing that will support improvements in health inequalities.

Through this scheme, Get Set UK’s services will enable individuals access to employment, in many cases quickly, building on their strengths and skills, enabling them to realise their potential for recovery. Our Employment Specialists will work alongside a network of existing health and care teams and local employers to support those who want to work.

Thomas Harley FIEP FRSA, Get Set UK’s CEO: “The IPS model is a proven model of employment support for people with mental health issues. It has been shown to deliver superior employment and health outcomes, achieving up to twice as many job outcomes for people with severe mental illness than traditional programmes. Through the Work Wise programme, Get Set UK will offer expansive support services to those with mental or physical disabilities, those already accessing health services and/or those with ESOL needs, to find jobs that meet their strengths and skills, whilst also supporting their wider needs.”
