Supporting inclusive workplaces consultation

15 October 2018

CALL FOR EVIDENCE: Supporting inclusive workplaces for everyone – Health Related Pathways to Work.

Homeless Link and Win/Win Alliance are co-leading a Health and Wellbeing Alliance project involving eight other Alliance members as well as the Employment Related services Association (ERSA), and Making Every Adult Matter (MEAM).

The partnership is supporting the Health and Work Unit to work towards inclusive workplaces for everyone.

Central to this work is developing an Employer Directory to highlight ‘national and local pathways to work’. This electronic Directory of employment support programmes will sit alongside a Pathways to Work toolkit for public sector employers and the voluntary and community sector.

These resources will help employers work with and support disabled people, people with long term health conditions and disabilities and people with  protected characteristics as defined by the Equalities Act 2010: age; disability; gender reassignment; marriage and civil partnership; pregnancy and maternity; race; religion or belief; sex; sexual orientation.

The work will also seek to address the needs of homeless people, those with experience of poor mental health, people in contact with the criminal justice system and people with experience of substance misuse.

As part of this project we are issuing a Call for Evidence for examples of national and local employment support initiatives and “success stories” helping people towards, into and to stay in work. The good practice and success stories will be brought together as a Directory that will be shared with employers.
