OHID’s national Health and Work Directorate invites you to join a webinar to hear about the WorkWell Partnership Programme (WWPP) which was announced at spring budget as part of a package of proposals to help address economic inactivity.
This is an opportunity to design and deliver your own service in local partnerships to support your aims of improving your population health, reducing health inequalities and supporting social and economic development. The programme will be locally led, bringing together the NHS, local authorities and other partners, in collaboration with jobcentres.
The programme will pilot support for disabled people and people with health conditions who want help to remain in, return to or take up work. Services funded by the pilot will be in place from autumn 2024 and will provide light touch work and health support, with the aim of preventing and reducing economic inactivity and inequality among disabled people and people with health conditions. Participants will receive one to one support from a work and health specialist, who can offer advice on managing health conditions in work.
The OHID Health and Work Directorate welcome the opportunity to tell you more about the proposals, to hear your views and to understand how we can work together on this exciting new initiative. There will be a short webinar presentation on Thursday 13 July and again on Tuesday 18 July to introduce the programme, set out the timeline and generate some early interest in advance of the formal launch of an expressions of interest process in the autumn.
