Work Aid

What is Work Aid?

Work Aid is a free monthly support service for individuals with mental health problems. It’s designed to help those transitioning back into employment, or those at risk of falling out of work due to mental ill-health. Work Aid provides the extra help people need to stay well at work in a relaxed, supportive atmosphere.

Who can attend?

Work Aid is open to anyone within the Bradford District who is experiencing mental health problems, provided they are either:

  • in employment or
  • on sick leave from work

If you are a Cellar Trust service user, you may also be able to access Work Aid, speak to your Support and Development Specialist for more information.
