Employ-Ability is a specialist employment support charity working with people experiencing mental health problems.

Our mission is to help people with mental health problems to get into and keep work, in Essex and beyond. We work in the best interests of our users by mentoring, encouraging and supporting them to achieve their potential in their working life.

At Employ-Ability, we champion good mental health in the workplace by working in partnership with employers to help them to work with our users in the best way.

Services will help people experiencing poor mental health find and keep work.

Employ-Ability, working in partnership with Essex Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust (EPUT), are delighted to have been awarded two new contracts by Essex County Council to provide mental health supported employment services across Essex. Working with Essex and Southend Clinical Commissioning Groups, EPUT and Employ-Ability will continue to provide an Employment Service but will now also run an Employment Retention Service to help people experiencing poor mental health find and maintain work.

The services commenced on 1 July 2020 and are contracted to run until April 2023.
