The Work Positive programme could help you to take positive steps back towards suitable and sustainable employment in a safe, supportive environment and in a way that suits you. 

If you're living in London, Brighton or Sussex, we offer opportunities to take part in face-to-face elements of the programme. If you live anywhere else in the UK, you'll be able to access the programme online through Moodle and Zoom. All participants will be able to access the online elements. 

Applications for all areas of our programme will open in July.
