Employ Well

Are you an employer who wants to give back to your local community and help break the stigma around mental health?

In addition to providing career coaching to people who have experienced mental ill health to help them get back into work, we also support organisations to help them become more inclusive and equitable employers.

We work with clients in the boroughs of Croydon, Lewisham and Southwark who are skilled, talented, motivated and ready to work. We are seeking employers who want to support their community by giving people a chance to demonstrate their talent.

Mental health in the workplace

Approximately one in four people will experience a mental health problem every year in England. That’s why it’s more important than ever that employers are able to face up to the challenges presented by this in the workplace.

As a team of employment professionals working alongside mental health experts, we support employers to create more inclusive and equitable workplaces.

Supporting employers

We work with employers of all sizes and in every industry across South London and the surrounding areas.

Our support is individually tailored and wide ranging, and best of all, it’s free!

The support you receive could include, but isn’t limited to:

  • helping you to fill your vacancies
  • supporting you to introduce reasonable adjustments for staff members
  • monitoring and improving staff wellbeing
  • raising mental health awareness amongst your workforce

Sarah Walker, Retail Trading and New Channels Manager at Gatwick Airport said: “Employ Well has supported London Gatwick and many of our partners with managing mental health within the workplace.

“This new relationship will also support those who are ready to come back to work after some time out, with a range of employment opportunities.

“It’s an exciting and important initiative that London Gatwick is proud to be part of.”
