Project Director: Richard Crisp
Project Duration: 2018-2022
Working Well Early Help is a flagship early intervention programme available to Greater Manchester residents in work who either become ill and risk falling out of the labour market or who are newly unemployed due to health issues. This evaluation will assess the effectiveness of the programme in preventing long term sickness and disengagement from the labour market, especially amongst those employed by Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) where human resources, occupational health and employee wellbeing services are more limited. It will inform future investment decisions in similar programmes and services both in Greater Manchester and nationally.
The project team also includes Lisa Scullion, Jenny Ceolta-Smith, Andrea Gibbons (University of Salford).
