Who we are

Working with the DWP, Reed in Partnership are able to help people with a disability that are not yet ready for employment but would like support to start and stay in work.


The Department of Work and Pensions have a new programme, (Intensive Personalised Employment Support, IPES) which commenced at the beginning of December and is designed for people with a disability who are more than 12 months away from being ready for employment.

The programme is voluntary but the participants must want to work. We will provide participants with the best possible support to start work and stay in work. They will have access to support for 15 months, plus a further six months once they are working.

It is open to people aged 18+ and can either be in receipt or not receiving benefits but they can only be referred to us via work coaches in the JCP's 

If you are interested or are working with someone who would benefit from this programme, please contact Job Centre Plus and they will deal with it from there.
