Work Well Advice Line

The Work Well Advice Line was a 12 month pilot project run by South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust 

The advice line project came to an end on Tuesday 28 February. The project was launched last year as part of the community-led South London Listens action plan and helped hundreds of callers from across London and the UK. 

Will I still be able to get advice from Work Well? 

You can still access free employment advice on a range of topics on our  advice blog. 

Why did the Work Well Advice Line closing? 

The Work Well Advice Line was launched as a 12 month pilot project. Funding for the project came to an end as we reached the end of the pilot period. 

Over the coming months we will be evaluating the project, and hope for the advice line to return in the future.
