Imagine Employment Services provides bespoke employment support for people with any form of disability or mental ill-health. We work primarily in 1-1 appointments (some group sessions are available) and help people prepare for employment in the ways that suit them best. We can help with writing CVs, job searching, interview preparation, work place support, completing application forms, finding volunteering and work experience placements.


The support we provide is pro-active and person centred. We work with people on their terms and on their goals and will always work to help develop confidence and access local opportunities.


How do I refer to this organisation?


Referrals usually come through Social Worker, CPN or Care Co-ordinator – who would phone or email and we would set up a face to face meeting to discuss the referral. Self referral is also possible – again get in touch and we can meet up to discuss everything.

Individuals or companies can also refer for in job support for their staff members and may be eligible to receive Access to Work funding. If you want to access this kind of support get in touch and we can discuss it further.
