  • Work and Health Unit - Work and Health Challenge Fund

    Created: 24/07/2018

    The Work and Health Unit (WHU), which is jointly managed by the Department for Work and Pensions and the Department of Health and Social Care, is using this Challenge Fund to test new approaches that can help people experiencing mental health and/or musculoskeletal (MSK) issues stay in work.

    They will fund initiatives which will improve the understanding of what works in one or more of the following areas:

    • helping people stay in work by increasing their ability to self-manage their conditions;
    • helping people access advice and support about what sort of work they might be capable of doing given their wider needs and circumstances;
    • developing new approaches to help employers and individuals develop workplace solutions, or ways of working that facilitate greater participation of people experiencing these conditions; and
    • improving systems by joining up services to strengthen communication, liaison or joint action.

    Next deadline: 17th August 2018
