Working Well Trust
Working Well Trust was founded in 1992 by a group of mental health professionals who wanted to address the issue of low employment rates for people who have experienced mental health issues. At the time it was not expected that our clients would move in to employment of any kind and there was resistance from some other professionals and family members who saw work only as a risk. Fortunately, this situation has greatly improved and we have seen advances in the specialist support offered to people seeking employment and a change in cultural attitudes towards mental health. In the last few years we have adapted this approach to work with people with Autism (ASD), people with learning difficulties, or complex issues including homelessness or addiction.
