COVID-19 Service Update
The Employment Support Service is currently receiving a high number of referrals and therefore there may be a delay in responding to enquires and referrals. If you have submitted a referral please bear with us and we will respond as soon as we can. We are still open for referrals and are currently offering remote and face-to-face support to clients accessing the service.
If you would like to get in touch, have an enquiry about the service or would like to know the status of a referral please email us at: ess@mindincroydon.org.uk.

I can honestly say that without the help, support and advice I’ve received from Employment Support, I would have resigned my current employment due to me not believing in myself enough to cope with stressful situations.

Employment can be a contributor to a meaningful and productive life. It reduces social exclusion and helps promote recovery in mental health.

What is Employment Support?

Mind in Croydon’s Employment Support is a service designed to assist people with mental health problems to find work and live independently in the community. The service aims to provide a holistic and comprehensive support programme that can be individually tailored to meet your needs and aspirations, and to help facilitate your transition towards employment.

What support does the service provide?

People who access the service are allocated a dedicated Employment Support Worker (ESW) who will assist them throughout their engagement with the service and take special interest their progress. The ESW will provide individualised support in many areas to help increase the independence and work related skills of each service user. They will also give advice on possible career opportunities and create development plans to help each individual to move towards their employment goals, focusing on their strengths and abilities, and overcoming the barriers they may face.


If you would like to book onto any of our Workshops, please email ess@mindincroydon.org.uk or call the Employment Support team on 020 8253 8202.
