Greater Manchester launched its Working Well: Work and Health Programme in January 2018. The programme aims to support the long-term unemployed and people with health conditions or disabilities into sustainable employment across the city-region.
First announced as part of the 2014 Devolution agreement, Greater Manchester successfully negotiated for the opportunity to co-design, procure and deliver a localised version of the new Work and Health Programme. As a result, the £64.4 million programme will support nearly 30,000 individuals across Greater Manchester between 2018 and 2026.
InWorkGM deliver the programme across Greater Manchester; an alliance partnership between Ingeus and The Growth Company, and also including the specialist health, wellbeing and disability support organisation Seetec Pluss.
The programme offers over 200 different health interventions through a keyworker-based delivery model.
Similar to the Working Well programmes that precede it, the programme brings together expertise and local knowledge to include integrated health, skills and employment support, and offers all participants individually tailored and personalised support from their own dedicated key worker to support them on their journey back to work.
Integration with local services is at the heart of the Working Well: Work and Health Programme. An Integration Coordinator in each of the ten boroughs across the region works closely with Local Authority leads and key partners to understand the needs of participants and maintain and create new partnerships with local providers or specialist organisations. This ensures the right support is available at the right time.
