Employment support is a major part of helping people maintain recovery, prevent relapse, and secure a happy future. For many who’ve experienced substance misuse or other issues that have seriously affected their long-term wellbeing, gaining or re-gaining employment represents a new chapter in their lives.
The employment support options we offer are designed to as provide the skills and capabilities needed to find work, as well as boosting confidence and self-belief – a key part of preventing relapse, and safeguarding the progress made towards recovery.
The Peer Mentoring Service (formerly the Out of Work service) aims to help people move towards employment and economic independence. We do this through a mix of training, skills development and qualifications.
It's delivered by NewLink Wales and Gofal, and made possible by funding from the European Social Fund through the Welsh Government.
