Mental health project secures another year of funding

Our team, which supports local people with mental health issues get into work, have secured another year of funding to continue their project.

Our Looking up Project receives funding from Job Centre Plus to deliver intensive support, including one to one counselling sessions, personal coaching, employer liaison, confidence building and in work support.

From May 2017 to February 2018, the team signed up 116 people to the project, exceeding their target of 100. From these 116, 36 have had counselling sessions, 12 have attended job interviews, 24 have been part of a support group, 11 have been on training and 14 have now moved into full time employment.

Chris Baker, Community Investment Co-ordinator here at Ongo said: “We’re delighted that Job Centre Plus have decided to fund us for another year, so we can continue to support local people with this much needed service.

“Mental health is something that affects us all, and this can be a huge barrier to our clients trying to get into employment. We’re very fortunate that our team is made up of three highly trained members of staff, including a BACP registered psychotherapist, so we’re able to provide a high standard of support.”

“We’re excited to continue the project and help even more people get into work.”
