I Can Work

I Can Work helps people with mild to moderate mental health problems find and remain in employment in order to support their recovery and improve their wellbeing.

It is run across the six counties of North Wales and led by Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board in partnership with RCS and Cais, with funding from Welsh Government. 

I Can Work is based on the principles of IPS (Individual Placement and Support), which is recommended by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence

People who receive support from I Can Work may experience one or a number of the following: 

• Depression or low mood
• Anxiety
• Panic attacks
• Obsessive compulsive disorder
• Emotional deregulation

Anyone who is supporting you with your mental health can request that the I Can Work team supports you with your employment goals. The only qualifying criteria are that you are looking for work, and have been out of work for up to 12 months.

You will meet an I Can Work Advisor who will discuss your job goals

After initial meetings, the I Can Work team will work with you immediately to find paid jobs

This includes working with employers to meet your goals

The I Can Work team will provide in depth support with benefits and the impact of going back to work on your income

The I Can Work team will provide support until it is no longer required. To find out more about how I Can Work can help you back to work, contact us on 01745 336442 or email icanwork@rcs-wales.co.uk
