Peer Support

Have you been ill and off work? Are you ready to return to work?

If you’d like to get back to work, but need a little extra support to help you get there then our Peer Support Employment project could be perfect for you! 

“Because of Crossroads I have been able to get back into work. The team have always been very supportive and have helped me develop skills to make returning to work an easier process.” - Matthew, 32

Is Your Health Holding You Back From Finding the Right Job?

We can help support you to find the right job for your interests, skills and health conditions.

If you are or have been on a sickness-related benefit, or you feel that a health condition is holding you back, we can help you explore your options, identify any barriers to work you might be facing and set goals and create an action plan.

Peer Support is all about supporting you to help you find the right job. We can help you to explore volunteering, training or paid employment to help you gain experience and confidence. This may open up new opportunities for you to get involved in your community, develop new skills, meet people and earn income.

What We Do

We can offer a positive step towards getting back to work in a supportive, confidential environment.

We can help you figure out what your barriers to work are and can help you to set goals and work towards achieving them. We can connect you with our partners at the Job Centre to create a new CV, search for jobs and get advice about the type of jobs that are available.

We are experienced in supporting people from all walks of life and with a variety of health-related issues. We understand that this might be the first step of your journey into work.

Ongoing Support

You don’t have to stop talking to us once you have found a job! Ongoing support is available as you take the next step, so you don’t have to do this alone.

You might then be able to help others. The Peer Support Employment project can introduce you to others who are also returning to work.

Please note that getting in touch with us does not affect your benefits. We will explore with you how your benefits may be affected by going back to work or increasing your hours.
