Workwell scheme

The recent government announcement regarding the “WorkWell” pilot program is a positive step towards supporting individuals with health conditions or disabilities in returning to the workforce. Here at Bhayani Law, we understand the challenges this demographic faces, and we’re committed to keeping our clients informed of developments that can impact their employment journey.

What is WorkWell?

Launching in October 2024, WorkWell is a pilot program designed to offer tailored support to individuals with health conditions or disabilities seeking to re-enter employment. The program aims to connect participants with the resources and guidance they need to overcome barriers and find suitable work opportunities.

How can WorkWell benefit you?

The specific details of the program are still emerging, but here are some potential benefits to consider:

  • Personalised Support: WorkWell may provide access to employment coaches, skills training, and other resources tailored to your specific needs and health condition.
  • Improved Job Search: The program could offer assistance with resume writing, interview preparation, and connecting with potential employers.
  • Workplace Adjustments: WorkWell might help you and your future employer explore workplace adjustments to create a more inclusive work environment.
