Helping disadvantaged people into sustainable work

Whatever their circumstances, we have found ways to make employment work for thousands of people.

Our services

Better Working Futures

Better Working Futures is Reed in Partnership’s name for the Work and Health Programme. The service gives people who face additional barriers to finding work the best support

Participants work with their own Employment Adviser who takes time to understand their interests, skills, ambitions, experience, health and personal circumstances.

A plan is developed using this information and access to a range of support offered, including help managing a health or disability, personal skills development and job application support.

A range of personal support is available, drawing on local community services and our range of partner organisations. In-work support is offered once employment is achieved.

The Work and Health Programme is commissioned by the Department for Work and Pensions.

Midlife MOT

A Midlife MOT drives retention rates for older workers.

It does this by providing an assessment that allows 45 to 55 year-old employees to review their work, wealth and wellbeing. The assessment helps them make achievable plans and gain clarity and confidence about how to shape their future at work and beyond.

Reed in Partnership is delivering a pilot of the Midlife MOT in East Anglia for the Department for Work and Pensions.
