Able Futures delivers the Access to Work Mental Health Support Service on behalf of the Department for Work and Pensions. It could be available to you if you can answer "yes" to the following questions:

  • Are you aged 16 or over?

  • Are you in work, on an apprenticeship, about to start work or furloughed?

  • Do you live in Great Britain?

  • Do you have mental health difficulties that impact upon your work?

This list is not exhaustive and it is ultimately up to the Department of Work and Pensions Access to Work Mental Health Support Service adviser to determine eligibility.

"It has been absolutely great. I’ve been very happy with the support and advice so far."
