Gateway Project Mental Health Gwynedd & Anglesey

This mental health project aims to engage with unemployed individuals who require additional support to enter the labour market because of a mental health problem.

Work experience/ work placement: A vocational assessment is carried out to identify the most appropriate job roles before a suitable work placement is set up. As part of the project we will offer up to 3 days a week work experience and will provide workplace support to ensure the placement is as successful as it can be.

The project aims to progress each individual either into paid supported employment, volunteering, further training or into a recognised mainstream activity.

If you want the support to be able to return to work, we offer you personalised assistance to do so.
