Nearly £8m in funding to extend employment support services
The Welsh Government is investing nearly £8m to continue three employment services that help people recovering from physical, mental ill-health and substance misuse into and to remain in work.
The Out of Work Service and In-Work Support Service, which are helping people to rebuild their lives, and will be extended until 2025.
The Out of Work Service helps the most vulnerable and those furthest away from the labour market. It is specifically focused on providing long term support to people recovering from mental health or substance misuse issues. The service provides support through a national network of peer mentors – people who have themselves recovered from issues such as mental ill-health or substance misuse.
